Significantly less rocky and technical than its northern half (Pokerchip north), Pokerchip south follows several switchbacks down into a canyon and then back up the other side, where it intersects with Gamble Oak and terminates at Mahogany.

      As of today they have taken out the fun steep climb and added switch backs. Really dry and washed out hopefully it gets better and less damn dirt bikes
