       I wanted to explore this trail and because there were no comments I didn’t know what to expect. Turns out that the only way to have any real fun on this trail is to access it via going uphill from wippletree or belcher. Going from top of mid Longhorn is NOT the way. Now I know and as they used to say in GI JOE-“knowing is half the battle.” That and having a friend who’s rode it before and tells you what I just did. Happy trails!
