A new single track that runs parallel to Waterworks. There are a few loose and rocky dh sections. There is a log roller near the end that your chain ring might catch depending on the height of it (29ers should be fine). At the end of the trail there is a steep canyon roller that is very loose. Watch out for cactus as they are littered all over the trail.

 The log roll was my favorite part of the trail
