Contains optional TTFs, steep rough terrain and moderately steep natural TTFs. Quite technical. Definitely very different from the new school trails and a step up in difficulty as well. It is well maintained and can be ridden with a decent amount of speed. A good introduction to the more challenging old-school trails.

Access Info

Accessed off Mtn Hwy past the 5th switchback at the large clearing about 20 meters
past Ladies Only.
