This is a really short trail that ties the end of In Deep to the main firetrail descent out of Garbo Zone. It is skinny in places with a rocky cliff on one side and leafy bushes on the other, with a rugged trail to negotiate. It can also be reached by heading up the slope from the container jump to the right (good on trail bike, not so good on DH bike) - I enjoy it much more than simply rolling down the road. And it pops out just above Blueberry Bathtub, so you aren't missing any trails if you choose to go that way.
