One of the signature trails on Galbraith. Fast and flowy trail all the way down to the north entrance.
Lots of fun jumps & gaps and an epic rock roll with a ride-around.
Previously known as Golden Spike, but now seems to be called SST.

The first few hundred feet have been mangled by recent logging activity. You can bushwack thru it, but they probably don't want you to.
