Global Ranking#44179 in Mountain Biking
A less grueling climb than Climbax with a fun flowing downhill. The swtichbacks at the bottom of the hill have no berms and so need to be taken more slowly than you might want given the loose nature of the dirt. It's a new trail so it's still pretty raw and needs some love from the trail crew but it has all the ingredients for a great loop. Please don't ride this if it's wet as you'll definitely destroy the trail. It's all fairly loose dirt with no undergrowth to hold it in place.
Hang a left at the top of the steps (you can ride up them) and then proceed up a gentle climb with a few switchbacks and one good dip roll before topping out on the ridge and taking the downhill.

|As noted a great trail and under-appreciated. Gave it a once-over and tidy-up, cut out a bunch of deadfall, and have done about half the raking....|
