This is a newly built connector between Cusick Creek and Gibson Jack with great views of Pocatello and the surrounding hills. This can easily be joined with numerous options on the Cusick Creek side to get in a longer ride. The trail can be a bit gnarly in sections with some serious rocks and some steep drop offs, but the view is amazing.

A few dusty patches but overall in good shape. Be careful with the trees and bushes encroaching the trail. Some of them are big enough to knock...

Lots of runoff on the southern end. Mostly good. Some small puddles to walk around but nothing crazy. Hero dirt for the most part.

 Great views! A bit technical with some rock gardens -- and don't fall over the edge!

 Beautiful trail, I can't even imagine all the work that went into this. Great views, some nice flowy sections, some good rock features, and some great technical riding. There is a lot of very steep exposure for long stretches. This trail is NOT for beginners. Looking forward to riding it again.
