Quickest way to connect Intestine and SST. When climbing, there are a few sections that require out of the seat hard pedals to make it up. But you get a little break here and there as it isn't straight uphill and even has some downhill. When heading down, there are no berms, but really fun except for little bit that isn't downhill that sneaks up on you just as you are getting into it. Lightly ridden trail, so great traction/drainage etc.

       Not sure if this is open. Lots of purposeful branches over trail.
