This dual direction trail connects the middle of the connector trail and upper portion of the Fireweed Trail. This trail will provide a more technical climb than other trails at GPRA. There intact roots that you will need to navigate, a few banked turns, and a lot of embedded rocks to navigate on your climb up.

While the trail is a moderate climb, it is also very fun to descend. The trail changes texture from top to bottom, but provides enough opportunity to keep you on your toes. Look for small root and rock transfers, side hips and some a variety of turn styles.
