This is the intermediate level trail that is challenging and fun. From the trail on the old railroad grade, follow the sign to the right and head toward the Gambel oaks. The trail is level, then climbs steeply up switchbacks through the oaks. Soon thereafter, you're out of the oaks and you'll find yourself heading across and old ski run back into a small oak grove. The trail eventually finishes at the winter sledding hill. Try riding this one backwards - it's even more fun!
