This XC trail runs from the far end of Water Shed to the beginning of Water Bottle. It offers some of the most scenic views of all the SARA Park trails. I've rated it as a Black Diamond due to several sections where you don't want to lose your balance. The section between Water Shed and Criminal flows fairly well, the section between Criminal and Water Bottle is definitely more technical.
