This newer trail starts at the intersection of Pauli and Uncle Nazty, and connects down into (Upper) Sand Dunes. Expect a flowy rolling start before things get very interesting; after a left turn with multiple lines there will be an optional exposed line on the right (with the best view down onto Salida) into an optional 5ft step-down on the right. More rolling trail with several lines until another optional rock-roll feature on the left. The trail then pitches down with several (rollable) 1ft drops in sharp turns, into more steep. It levels out about 2/3rds in, and actually goes uphill for a little bit, before the final downhill section into a wash with a tricky last move that connects it into (Upper) Sand Dunes.
This trail is technical, with steeper grades, with lots of rock and some exposure. It requires good bike handling skills, and knee & elbow pads might be a good choice for this one.

This trail was hand-built by Singletrack Trails Inc., for Salida Mountain Trails.

 This trail is TECHNICAL. I had a blast on this beast, but it should definitely be ranked as a double black diamond because it has steeper drops and jankier gnar than Upper Sand Dunes.
