Connector between Starr Pass valley and Robles Pass trails. Trials skills needed for a short section in the middle, but fun ripping descent down either side.

 A challenging, fun ride, with numerous intricate rock problems in the middle. All rideable with practice. Ride west to east for a rollicking, rubbly downhill finish

 A must do ride. Great in any direction and one of the most enjoyably "sessionable" rides off the mountain.
