Old school XC downhill trail. Final 50m of the trail is a steep descent which crosses over 2nd Helping / Subversion, so watch for riders. Also, there's a number of log obstacles on the trail so be prepared to hop or stop.

Access Info

The trailhead is accessible from Swift Mountain Road. The sign is obscured by tall grass. New trail markers (flourescent ribbon) mark the entrance directly opposite the TH for Poker Run.
