An awesome MTB singletrack alternative to dodging the jeeps on the Amasa Back road. Works great in both directions.

       This trail is okay. If you like climbing for an hour before going back down capt ahab etc. People rave about it, but I would say it wasn't worth it for all the climbing. Just not that much flow or fun.
