This is a multi-use trail that is most often ridden in the counter-clockwise direction by mountain bikers, due to the steep switchbacks found at the furthest southeastern reaches of the loop. Please be aware of other users in these steep switchback sections, as greater speeds and reduced advanced visibility could lead to trail conflict.

Description

The run begins with a relatively easygoing section of trail across the ridge to the top of the "The Fall Into Hades" descent. Runners can turn left and plunge into the depths, or decide to live life on the "straight and narrow" by heading straight onto Yinz G.O.Y.S. as a bypass of this switchbacking downhill.

Ran Alien Armpit and Yinz Goys on the first day of the year. 1 degree and mostly animal tracks in the snow.
