You'll cross it again in a short distance, climb up a short steep rocky section, the drop into and ride up the creek bed.

At mile 0.7 you'll ride onto the 2 track down in Witches Canyon. Follow the 2 track to the right and out of the canyon. At 0.8 miles, you intersect South Witches Canyon Road. Turn right and ascend back to the southeast on South Witches Canyon Road. At mile 1.05 turn right on the singletrack heading southeast.
