Fun newer track - best ride North to South (downhill) and can get some speed but lots of blind corners and rock gardens so use caution.

Access Info

New Pima lot (Pima and Dynamite roads) to the south and Brown's Ranch Road from the north

       Well built trail that has a nice flow and keeps you turning. North to south is my favorite (downhill).
