This is a classic old trail. Originally a multi use trail shared by motto and mtb and an occasional hiker. Conditions are a bit technical up top and has always been known for baby heads mid way down where the trail merges with what is now known as the basin trail. The trail has changed names over the years, originally known as trail #30, this trail was one of the main routes for downhillers in the area due to its technicality. This section of trail has some pedal sections as well as some climbing so not a true DH course its still fast and lofty great for Enduro setup. Connects to another section of the Basin trail which is more pedaly DH down to Noschka. There is no direction as stated in a previous report, but rather rider most likely encountered Poker Run markers held by local moto group. Not too many motos hit sections this high up. Generally if you ride bike you most likely are coming down from the peak, moto riders are generally going to be riding up, so keep mindful of moto sounds as you are taking those berms.Sweet classic trail if you connect down to Noschka. This route used to have Sunday shuttle service. No longer available.
