Tight and twisty riding through manzanita that is from waist to over head high. Watch out for other trail users on the turns. You'll have a nice view as you come out on the other side, looking out over Barloy Canyon towards Toro Mountain to the East.

       My favorite trail in the area. Because: you can’t see where you are going. The trail is so twisty and the waist high brush only let’s you see about ten meters forward. But when you get it dialed, it’s so fun. Works great in both directions.

       Super fun trail with lots of blind turns. Have to keep your eyes and ears open.
