At the bottom of the steep section on the Yetman Trail, the trail splits. Stay to the left. Shorty thereafter you'll come to another intersection. Head straight. The trail drops down to the wash. If you aren't watching, you can go down to the left and end up in the wash. It's rideable, but not as fun as the trail above.

Make sure to make the right up the hill before heading into the wash. The trail from here takes you to the pass. Once at the pass, continue straight and drop down. In the wash you'll see the trail go off to the right or straight. Either way will get you to the same point, but the right is harder. The right takes you down and up some steep whoop-de-doos. At the end of them you'll get to an opening in the fence line. From here take a right. If you take the easier route down the wash it takes you down to a gate.

From there take a right up the access road to the opening in the fence. Continue on the access road and it will take you to the next gate. On the other side of the gate the singletrack continues to the left. The trail is more of what preceded it, rocky and heading up and down singletrack.
