A de-comissioned road that links into a piece of moto trail to allow access from the top of Murphy's Grade (also known as 5 Corners) to to the road right before Thrillium. This was previously unclear and unfamiliar riders have often not known how to climb to Thrillium parking lot without taking Dole Valley Rd.

       It is really easy to miss the turn off the road onto the singletrack that leads up to the next road segment - this is not a single road like it appears on TF. At 0.8 miles take the track that comes down steep onto the road.
