Description

It is possible to circumnavigate the north peak on this trail. It begins as silty and steep, then turns into wide track littered with baby heads.

The trail is mostly unrideable in the old landslide area of the north. Riders will need to walk and in some sections carry their bikes for a few hundred feet. Other sections are rideable but with a steep cross slope and embedded stones that grab pedals.
