A counter-clockwise loop that begins and ends in Sullivan Canyon. Expect a great variety of riding as the singletrack climb out of Sullivan leads you to the smooth-flowing Farmer's singletrack descent which serves as a warm-up for J-Drop and Squirrel Cage technical descents off the Backbone trail. Warning: J-Drop and Squirrel Cage are very steep and technical descents that contain switchbacks, very deep ruts and an extreme abundance of large loose rocks. Please exercise CAUTION when riding down these trails.

09/21/13 Stopped to talk to Terry the Unigeezer. Much better run than last time as the weather was more forgiving. Forgot to pack food but luckily found some trail mix in my pack after J-Drop.
Cleared Farmers with ease and did much better on J-Drop/Goat.
Legs were toast by the end!
