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.

       Exactly what ashlemon said - the cutoff is SUPER easy to miss. We saw it and still didn't realize it was the way to go. And after riding, others told us the same story. IMO the trail before and after the cutoff should be different names to help clarify and because you clearly leave the gravel road and get onto a dirt trail (i.e., they are different trails)!

       Lots of gun fire near this road. Almost got shot. Be careful out there.
