A fun little deviation from the typical up and down trail. You'll drop down into a bowl and climb your way out going either direction, clockwise is recommended. Some tight corners, steep pitches and bridge crosses help to keep things entertaining. Be mindful of others on this trail as it too sees a lot of multi-use traffic on a daily basis.
