The Spine is a bi-directional shared walking/cycling track that traverses across the hill that is Isaacs Ridge. The north end begins roughly in the middle of Isaacs off the paved road to the top, while the south end begins off the lower fireroad just next to the "north DH track".
As a traverse it doesn't have much elevation gain/loss, but it dodges between the trees just enough to make it a fun little track. It is infinitely more fun than the fireroad it parallels! Towards the northern end there are a few opportunities to get air if you are so inclined and moving fast enough.
