Nice trail that follows a degraded fire road along a ridge. Gives access to a couple of downhills such as The Rage and Backdraft.

       At the very begging you will experience what I can only describe as a deep hate for this trail. Very steep climb l. Because of our crazy association, this trail is no longer maintained from what I heard was their concern over kids actually riding on it. Anyway, it’s overgrown and quite narrow. Imo this would be an amazing little track otherwise. Zero shade so bring an umbrella Smile
