      Tree hung up just down from Pile of Rocks entrance. With the right amount of wind it's long enough to drop across the road.

       In good conditions, surprisingly more fun than you might expect for an old natural trail like this. This is a fun challenge if you're getting too complacent with the highly manicured stuff over on espresso.
