One of the highest trails connecting the railroad trail access point and ride-up to the top of Japanese Gulch ridge trails. This trail is narrow and has fall hazard! Mind your flat pedals, because you'll be bumping the ground and hillside if you climb up this trail. Descending the trail (top of ridge to creek / railroad grade) is fun, but mind your speed or you'll be enjoying a dinner of nettles and brambles!

Not a trail for beginners, kids or those who have a fear of falling.

 Some pretty serious off camber and well placed roots that can buck you off the trail. Most of the black diamond trails at The Gulch are off camber though... sadly not maintained either. So the edges of the trails slowly deteriorate and get thinner and thinner every year.
