An incredibly steep trek up the mountain. The south section of this trail climbs 400 feet in .4 miles - the grade exceeds 45º in places I'd say that it's only meant to be ridden downhill, but how do you get to the top? Nearby Hog Wild is also incredibly steep.

This trail is not for the faint of heart. I was told by a local rider that people snowboard down this trail in the Winter. It's a fun drop, but VERY challenging and intimidating!
