A windy, old school single track in upper Alta. Access this via the Devil's Castle single track, the turn off is easy to miss, hiding behind a big tree on rider's right. This trail has technical turns and rock gardens, some are during short, punchy climbs of over 20% grade. When you get to the mine tailings, ride the spine of them to continue on the trail, it flows faster from here to the end.
