Side view of 2nd bridge and 3rd bridge below with wide, steep berm between the two. Both cross the same ravine.

After the s-turn berms, there is a roller and then a double jump before you merge with the main, multi-use trail (see bench in background). Check your speed.

Below the two bridges, the trail becomes more gravelly over exposed red clay, because of frequent city water runoff. Avoid after a storm.

This is the second of 3 bridges, at a somewhat low point in the ravine just past the rock garden. Best to maintain speed to get up the steep roots between the trees on the other side.

There's a few tricky rock gardens and exposed roots on this trail. Best to keep your momentum and not touch the brakes when wet.
