Connects the main parking area to Shannon Ridge. Usually ridden from Shannon Ridge down. Coming from Shannon Ridge the trail starts smooth and flowy with tight turns. Past the small pond (Shannon Lake) there is either a creek crossing or a rickety bridge. Choose your poison. Once across the road there is a bailout onto 550A since shortly after the character of the trails changes. You need to strap on your air guitar and ride the rock garden out.
