Connects the big parking lot at the East Canyon saddle to Jeremy Ranch. Trail is generally more fun the closer you get to the North end. South end is getting badly overgrown, especially the last mile or so.

Beautiful views pretty much the whole way, accentuated by the Bald Mountain summit.

The southern end has lots of overgrowth and wet spots that make it hard to climb.

This trail should be called hill repeats. It's only considered black because of the fall line climbs and descents.

A few downed trees on the second climb. Fairly overgrown and loose in most places. Brutal climbs heading south.

 This is a great trail. Though overgrown in places, a small amount of maintenance could really do wonders.

 Totally, last time I rode this I was thinking man this would be sweet if I didn't have to wear these shin guards. ;-)
