A great trail created in 2020. Starting at the end of Satans Witch, the trail starts on a moderate rocky descent, bringing you to the first bermed right turn, into another descent over a rock face. Continuing on over a rocky section into a slow right, down over a rockface or a slightly less intimidating rooty line to the left, then a quick gain in elevation up over a rock face.

This brings you to a straight section over the rocks ending with a small drop, bypassed on the right. Out onto the exposed rock, it's a quick left for a few turns up through a climb. Across the bridge and another quick switchback completes that climb, exiting you onto a rocky clearing. Head along the clearing to a slow left.

At this point the start of Thorlock is on the left, while over and down the larger rock on the right lets you continue U-190. After the rock, it's a longer right turn leading into a steeper rocky descent. This flows out into a steep descent over a rockface, then back up quickly for another steep decent over the rocks, ending with a quick right turn. Flowing along the side of the hill, ending in a quick left over another steeper rock face, ending in a left turn over some softer ground.

Get your legs going across this section, over the bridge, into a right and then over a rock into a left berm for a small climb to the open ground, then down over another quick rock face, up again and into a quick right-then-left turn. This flows you along a rocky spine sweeping left with a great view of QV Gut.
