This was built as a connector trail from Value Added to Two Stroke. Also works as a good warm up if heading to Larvacide.

At the top there are three different lines. The left hand trail - is the least popular. The middle trail is the main line for riders looking for a single black slab. To the right in the woods is a double black line (signed) that requires a 13 foot drop to a slab transition.

There is also a panty line (for the two left-hand lines) 1/2 way down that sneaks through the forest on the right. This avoids the sting of the last committing slab role.

Note - the double black line, now has a variation on the run-in that makes it easier.

The granite has great traction and can be ridden in the rain.
