Great Natural Trail, but is largely closed from December 1st to April 15th annually due to wildlife closure.
It is steeper with a few fun options. Can be used to access some rowdy freeride lines.

Disclaimer

Mountain biking is dangerous. Be careful.

      Very sandy - especially in the upper sections. The last steep part is so sandy that it's unrideable (not that it's very rideable normally).
