New addition to Gatekeeper. It has a couple of moderate steeps with berms and some non committing jumps. One mild step down jump about half way down. A stiff blue but not quite a black trail. Nice views of the coast in both directions.

Access Info

Access off 142 main spur at the old wolf mountain mine site. Climb is tough until the first turn where it levels out
