Two-way trail.

Description

This trail is so named because of some graffiti that used to be spray painted on a rock by the trail.

From The Luge or Wall of Death, take a right on the paved bike trail and follow it uphill. There are generally a lot of pedestrians on this section, so watch your speed and be courteous. Watch for the trail entrance on your left and start climbing. There are a couple of small rock gardens just as you enter the singletrack.

The trail steadily climbs and gets pretty steep just before the top. At the top, you'll find the old foundations to a ski jump that is no longer there. Pause and consider the fall line the ski jumpers would take down into the valley.
