Probably the most physically demanding trail at Lake Issaqueena.

It starts with a somewhat technical, steep descent that takes you through two stream crossings. You're then met with a moderately long, gut-wrenching climb. It isn't a technical climb but it's very steep. After the climb is mostly flat and makes for a nice recovery.

At the end, take a right on the fire road to connect up with Loopty for a nice combo.
