New extension to the Goosebumps trails. No signage yet, spoke with local trail advocate and got trial name. This trail is a fun fast descent from the trail head, then turns into kind of a pump track and is traverses its way to the JEM intersection. I rode it both directions, but some of the downhill is on a narrow ledge, and it made passing difficult, as it appears to mostly be used for going down.

 This trail is most definitely NOT a downhill prefered trail. With the top of JEM being downhill only, this trail is the only single track route back to the Highway 59 parking area. In the future, it may actually be designated as uphill only. Please watch for climbers on your way down, they have the right of way.

 That setting was default, must have missed it. I changed it to bidirectional

 Epic trail. Rode down JEM and up it and boy did I wish we descended it. Long descent with small optional jumps and tons of flow.

 I think dead ringer is a rad trail to ride down. Yes it is an uphill option to get back to the upper jem parking lot but there are two other uphill options. At the gravel road at the bottom of the JEM DH section you can cross the highway and access Gould trail which is an easier but longer uphill climb. Or you can access the jeep road called jem access or jem loop. I hope deadringer never becomes uphill only because it is really fun to rip down it
