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.

      Awesome trail that is super fun to ride and you never get old of it. I don’t have a picture but if your coming in from the Gibson side about a mile in there is a swing made out of skis which is perfect for some hot bike pics

      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.

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