This is a doubletrack trail that runs along the top of the ridge, but serves as a crucial connector leading to much of the singletrack.

    The rating of "4" is enjoyability, not difficulty. There are just a couple little sections that will make you huff and puff. It is basically a dirt road. Length is 2.2 miles one way, all on the top ridge. Avert your eyes from "The Abomination" (Laguna Toll Road) chopping through the wilderness hills to the east. Beware also a few gung-ho "Bon-Zai" locals who care not for safety. Doggies on a leash are permitted on this trail. Many steep trails come up from Woods Canyon to connect to this trail.

    Really sandy and exposed... you've got to ride it, but its basically just a necessary evil.
