This section of trail is the bidirectional portion at the top of JEM that starts off at the parking lot and takes you to the road. Smooth winding singletrack with some really interesting shale rock formations and mini-cliffs that you ride next to. This part can flow pretty fast if you keep on the gas, but is a really mellow trail, great for the kids.
