Linking the north mountain biking area with the south ridge line, this trail can be a challenge for riders without a descent amount of trail riding experience and good physical condition (for the climbing). Whether riding north-to-south (the recommended direction) or south-to-north you'll be doing a good amount of descending and then a lot of climbing. Sometimes a trail exists because there's no other alternative to get from Point A to Point B. This is an example of that since limited options crossing large drainage with boundary of park and area of land slide steep slopes serving as the "rock and a hard place" which forced route of this trail. Builders did best they could to not make this too nighmarish and its actually a very fun challenge for those that enjoy a bit of hardcore climbing.

There's some cool wooden bridges thru an area on the south slope of Link'n'Pin.
