Bidirectional winding forest trail with 2 small rollers. Named McRib because it passes under a giant fallen pine tree with rib-like branches supporting it. This feature has been enshrined as a religious altar to worship the Forest Gods granting us everlasting tight singletrack forever free of motorcycles and e-bikes. When passing under McRib, riders honor the Forest Gods by yelling "McRib" in their own stylized way. The McRib shrine has been settling to lower heights, now requiring riders to bow as part of their worship.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
