Super fun connector trail, but has been damaged by the rain in the winter of 16/17, leading to a lot of rain gullies, both skinny and wide, shallow and deep. The trail begs for you to ride it fast, but be cautious if it's your first time and always beware there could be hikers and horses coming up.

Disclaimer

Multi use trail including horses. Ride cautiously on weekends.

Downed tree near the start. A bit overgrown on the main descent. Other than that it's riding well.
