• A 2-way climb trail that accesses the east end of the South Lakeside network. A moderately challenging climb with some sidehill sections. Combining this with UPS and Billy Goat makes a great loop with good viewpoints off Russet Bluff and over the so-called Asbestos Pits (which contain no asbestos). If you want to really cover some ground, it's a nice ride to the other end of the network from here but it's a fairly long pedal over some fun but not heavily travelled trails.
• The trailhead at the bottom is straight ahead off the end of the pavement where South Lakeside Drive dead ends. The trail travels uphill to the right and junctions into Southside Singletrack.
