Quick access to the DH & AM Bluff trails. Technically easy but has many steep sections without a lot of breaks. Also a couple short rooty sections.
Longway is an easier climb but is rated blue because of several technical bits.

       Note: Long way is an easier uptrack ! This may be a hike a bike trail for some as there are many steep sections without much of a break.
