“Flowing singletrack through the trees down into a dry stream bed, followed by "fun" climbing.”— LeeAB Brinckerhoff
Once you cross the dry stream bed (I'm sure at some point there is water in the thing but hey, this is the desert) the trail starts to climb. You'll begin with a couple of switchbacks that are a little tight then things mellow out until you reach the junction with the Gamble Oak trail.
Finish with another climb up to the Mahogany trail from here that in sections looks like a bobsled run, then ride the rock garden at the top of the climb.
