A short but fun bit of singletrack that leaves directly from the paved Double Peak Drive and joins with Lakeview Trail. A mix of tight, twisty, and technical with some flowy sections. Definitely worth riding if you're in the area.

      A little overgrown needs some clipping, lose rocks, some ruts. Only recommend riding down or there will be a lot of hike-a-bike.
