This is the second half of the motorized singletrack trail, Second Thoughts. It was constructed at the end of 2017 by MTRA and makes a nice connector from Snake Skin to Twist-n-Shout. It can be continued from Second Thoughts Top or connected to from the short connector that comes from Snake Skin.

 I love this trail, for being so new it's amazing, I rode this as an uphill and while it was a bit loose at the end but the overall condition of the trail is great for being so new. I recommend dropping some tire pressure for this one lots of technical rocks to climb over along with some loose and dry bits too.
