Brand new trail as of June 2020 that follows the hillside between the BPA road and the highway in the Southern Valley Trail System. Excellent, mellow climb to the top of Grumpy's and a super fun, flowy, bermed downhill. Best views from this part of the valley up Moose Creek and toward Teton Pass and Mt. OIiver.
