Machine built multi-directional multi-use trail. To ride head to far side of t-bar. Good drainage and doesn't get muddy after it rains. This trail is mainly in the trees so your in the shade most of the day. The trail climbs steady with a few bridge crossing and switchbacks. It comes out of the trees with a short section on the west run and then back into the tree. Multi-use so please watch for hikers as well as bikers. Joins up with Sunrise and provides access to lower Inducer.

       A little punchier than sunset east but still a great climb trail.
