Upper section of the new climbing trail .Once you cross Desous forestry road you have zone of narrow machine built trail,It's a stiff climb but does last too long.As you get closer to the top it hand built again.This is a great ride blue skill black fitness.It can be used as a blue DH down to Big ears for a connection to OOSUE and hit the campsite etc...
