Description

Daniels Pass is an easily missed trail. Once you have passed the collapsed tunnel you'll go through a split hill and it is immediately on your left. This trail is very similar to Sesame Canyon Trail. It is a steep descent with tight turning switchbacks. In the first part of the trail, you'll encounter a big jump over a log and then nice banked corners with a few more jumps thrown in. Then you start winding through trees over various rocky obstacles all the way down to the stream below that has no bridge. Things have been made pretty bad due to the massive amount of rain received over a short amount of time, so this trail is less fun due to erosion.

Upper portion is no issue, fun... some minor ruts. Lower section is pretty nasty with significant, deep ruts and very loose. Be on game...
