This is one of the offshoot trails from Middle Earth and it is the only trail to connect to Candy Mountain. This is one of the most technically demanding trails at Kincaid. There are lots of exposed roots and some off camber corners.

Access Info

To get to this trail you will need to continue north on Middle Earth from the top of Evolution. The intersection will be a slight right onto the trail. From the other direction you will need to bike south on Middle earth from the top of Second Breakfast/Archery range and enter the trail at a slight left.
