This short trail is full of freeride goodness if you look past the beaten path. There are a couple small drops and a couple optional rock face descents. Horses and cattle some times use this trail so beware of blind corners and loose rocks. This trail is by no means a double black however you can find some big faces to roll.

       A connector yes, but spicier than the trails it connects to.
