This fun single track trail starts at Viewpoint Trail and comes out at El Medio road. There will be some small jumps and berms built up in the next couple months. This trail has many small rock gardens including one small rocky drop near the bottom. It is hard to carry enough speed into it so usually the side wall is a better idea.

Access Info

The best way to access the trail would be to bike up to the top of El Medio and then hike up the trail with your bike. You can also get to this trail from illegally riding down Viewpoint Trail from the Highlands.
