“An optional branch of Section 16 providing more switchbacks to break up the brutal start heading north from Gold Camp Rd”
— Zander Göpfert
Yield appropriately to other trail users and respect official posted signage.
This is an optional branch to start Section 16 Trail
if you're heading north from Gold Camp Road
. There are more switchbacks which, in theory, will help this rough climb. Carry or trials-ride your bike up the initial stairs.
