Well let's just call this description Whipsnake 2.0 because this trail is for some unknown reason broken into two segments. Not my idea I'm just here to tell you about a cool legal singletrack in in the SF Bay Area. At the bottom of Wood Rat Trail you come to this section of Whipsnake. More on lower Whipsnake later, let's focus the important bit, this part of Whipsnake. Nice climb, few nice uphill switchbacks, Huuuuuuuuge Oak tree older than any of us (with bench), almost there, and then get your turning skills on. Not a super fast downhill section(please keep it that way), but great turns and good flow. Good line of sight in most places, but be cautious of other trail users.
