This trail is one of the more advanced trails in the Hillside areas. The tight switchbacks and turns in addition to the natural root and rollers make this for a technical challenge.

Access Info

To get to this trail you can start out either on the Hive at the top intersection (The Hive and Janice's Jive) or at the exit of Janice's Jive/ Llama Trail at the lower gasline.
