Wide gravel climbing trail built in 2013 to get from Gagliardi to Mel's. Follows a gradual but steady 6-8% grade with a few steeper sections. In 2014, a connector was built from upper Gagliardi to Sidewinder called Sidebandit which is part of a broader trail network plan. Sidewinder will eventually connect to the bottom of Nicole's.

Access Info

About halfway up the Gagliardi hill on the right hand side. There is a gate, go through the opening on the right and it will be 40 ft or so on the left.
