"Is this the one with the berms?" Yes, there are banked corners at the top of the trail. West Connector gets oodles of hiker traffic up from Quarry Lake, especially on the weekends, so keep your eyes open on the way down. This climb is a little easier than the East Connector, but really they're about the same.

Access Info

From the bottom, ride from Quarry Lake to the Powerline trail and follow the signs. From Highline, there's a sign for West Connector.
