Narrow, fast, rocky. Several steep and rocky pitches making this one of the more difficult trails at Syncline. Great views. Beware of Rattlesnakes and poison oak. Check yourself for ticks. A true bucket list trail for your wish list!

Access Info

Entrance to trail is at the 'Brown House' trail junction.

      Trail was running great today! Some standing water and lots of mud, but not to the point of damaging the trail. Go out and ride it! Awesome gnarly...

      Dirt and rock alike are tacky and solid. Perfect conditions.

      Dry, but not too loose. Poison oak everywhere! Made it hard to enjoy the ride in several spots.

       Quite technical, but very fun!. I would not recommend doing this trail on a HT.

       Amazing views! The climb is non-technical and mellow, offering lots of spots to stop and take pictures, but not much shade.
      Don't expect the visibility or grade to open up anything more than a mid-travel bike on the descent. Couple small rock gardens keep things interesting; this is a trail for your XC bike and camera. And bring lots of water.

       Choppy, minimal flow and loaded with poison oak and ticks. Amazing views on the way up though. Worth doing once.

       This trail flows great with speed, if first time riding, you may want to scope the two gully rock gardens before riding as straight shooting the gullys is not ideal for either. Really a fantastic DH with enough tech to keep you on your toes.
