Steep singletrack climb that can be used instead of the bottom of the Waimea Fireroad. Can be descended too, but Big Waimea (also called Red Diamond) is longer and more fun.

      Dry with erosion and minor to medium ruts. Overgrowth on the very bottom section hides a deep wheel sized rut on the final fork left. Recommend...

      Dry but some pretty big rain ruts on the steep section.

      Trail is in great shape! Haven't ridden it in a couple years, ruts are gone.

      Some work has been done on the trail fixing some ruts and cleaning up the bottom section.
