This is a narrow piece of singletrack with very tight switchbacks beginning across the road from the trail from Ensign Peak. From the top, a narrow singletrack weaves around curves of loose rocks and through workable switchbacks. As the trail gets deeper into the canyon gully, the switchbacks get tighter, and two of them verge on unrideable. Finishes with straightaway singletrack leading to the easier Columbus trail.

Some loose baseball-sized rocks, tight corners, and rocky steps make this a challenging climb.

 Loose and dusty. Scrub oak near the top needs a trim.
