This is a difficult climb with some root fragments and tight through the trees and overgrowth. It is a challenge that enables you to connect to the newer section of 9K and to access the downhill goodness that is Black Forest. Challenge your riding buddies to a cheese burger to clean this as a climb, the switch backs are very tight and slippery, but decent riders will clean all 7 heading Southbound.

This was originally the climbing portion of Black Forest, but got renamed after the 9k Trail was put in.
