This is the highest starting single track trail at Tokai and has great views from the trail head. A series of several tight switch backs take you down a steep loose mountain side. The trail is narrow and the sandy surface up top gives way to rocks and hard pack as you descend. A great place to practice switchback cornering skills, with care. There are a few short sections better graded black diamond but ridden with care the trail remains a blue grade affair. Beware trail side plant growth and the odd sudden section of gnar. Get that slow speed cornering tweaked!

|Trail is very dry and about a third of the trail is very sandy causing front wheel to give way easily. Trail needs some good rain.|

|Some soft sandy patches - watch the front wheel. Lower corners becoming rutted due to poor braking. Otherwise nice and smooth almost too easy now.|
