Description

This trail is either used as a really tough (but short) climb to access the rest of the trails at Pandapas Pond from the Heritage Park parking area off Meadowbrook Road, or as a downhill from the top of Horsenettle/Jacobs Ladder (Gateway (formerly known as Old Farm) has been used for Super-D races).

The trail features some rooty sections and tight switchbacks so it's a challenge any way you slice it.
