The top of Doing Time is one of MERA's best trails, the lower part is good but the ride back up to the top of Caffeine is worth it.

      A little dusty so plan accordingly if you are riding with a group. There are some loose corners to watch out for but overall still a great ride.

       The upper half is good, I recommend getting back on the road at the gate to go back up and going back down on Caffeine. The lower half has steep climbs that slow things down and ruin the party.
