Short segment of single track that's a popular route to end your descending ride on the Ezzy side of Beacon. A few smaller jumps, flow and a couple up and over rock gardens. Also common for riders to climb this trail to access The Myth or fire road double track, be aware of traffic in both directions.

Access Info

If starting at the Esmeralda trail head with the intention to climb, after the initial short climb to the fire road head to the right.
