       Posted 4/22/19: Until signage is up please be careful and watchful of the large drop. It is blocked by small logs and you can take the alternate route to the left. If you want you can unblock it, hit the jump and enjoy... but be sure to hike back up and replace the logs when you are finished for the safety of others.

      This is an awesome trail and offers a greater challenge than Distribution Line and Single Phase.
