"Purgatory", this trail is so good it may make you feel like you are in an intermediate state after physical death. Expect narrow, off camber challenging climbs.

If coming from Wakina drive, there is a shortcut to the trailhead next to the brick wall.

Watch your head on the large tree half way down that you can barely duck under.

Dry all the way through, clearance under the tree is still rideable.

Minor erosion (off-camber sections are slumping/sloughing). Still ice in "that spot". Still a rocking trail but she needs a bit of love.

 Trail is in rough condition after the last couple of wind storms. There are large trees down every few meters. If it was clear it could be a lot of fun!

 Old school build well and worth the ride when dry.
