Typically ridden from south to north. Fun singletrack with gradual up and downs. Trail has a some exposure as you are riding along the top of a ridge, however, there are often trails farther from the edge if you feel uncomfortable.

This section of trail ends with a hike-a-bike up a gnarly little face.
