Downhill Track. VERY difficult up. Trail splits into Difficult (right) and Easier (left) at one point. Highly recommended to take the Easier track. The Difficult track has long, rocky, steep sections that are dangerous in Wet conditions. When the trail comes out on the old railway bed there is a trail (K2 connector) to the left. This trail goes down to the start of Old Stumpy and shortens the ride by 15 - 20 minutes - if you don't do the whole Lower GSS and K2 South loop.

Access Info

50 meters down Old Stumpy from where OS joins Chihuahua.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

 Reclaimed Moto trail, but fun; especially the rock slabs
