Another HammerFest old school classic. Good way to gain the upper trail network when combined with Brian's Worm. Some grunts along the way, esp as you get closer to the power lines. Fun down also.

      Berm was made around that tight spot half way down, and logs crossing trail got a bit of dirt added to make it more flowy.

      There's deep puddles in many sections of trail. Watch out for stream at very end that connects to Pit2pit.

       I love the underbrush/wilderness/dense forest feel. Is really nice to see so much salal and huckleberry on the ride. Some hills require strategic gear changes, and there is a saweeet jump into a big berm that is calling my name hard.
