Seasonal use only (October 15 - April 15). Short, steep climb from Davidson River up to intersection with North Slope Connector. Has waterbars, several neat bridges over gulches, rooty sections, rhododendron tunnels, and banked curves. A fun downhill from North Slope Connector back to Davidson River campground. Scenic, steep mountainside. Makes up the North Slope ride.

Multiple trees down - Going CCW, both are just before the Art Loeb intersection and easily visible. Second grouping is further down.
