This is a pretty fast downhill trail. Has a few Northshore items thrown in, a few good log drops and a couple VERY technical lightning fast downhills. Good riding for most abilities. Where the trail branches (2 times), you will want to take the left fork. Ends up in the middle of wide open pasture, which you follow that trail back to Empire Grade. Very fun ride!!

Starting out from the main UCSC campus entrance, you head up Empire Grade Rd. Once at the peak of Empire Grade you will hit "Twin Gates". This trail actually starts just before you reach Twin Gates. You will see a dirt road with a group of mailboxes in front of it. Take this dirt road. At the bottom you will find the entrance to Mailboxes.
