A connector trail that is quite mellow with a few ups and downs between the valleys and hollows.

Description

This trail is equally good in either direction. The Bethnal Rd. crossing is the high point, so from either end, it is a climb up to Bethnal Rd., and a descent to the opposite side.

WEST TO EAST: This trail shoots off of the The Back 40 Loop to Hwy 340 (Library) to the east, and connects with SBAT to the west. Starting from the SBAT junction, you begin with a left-hand turn, which then leads you to a low area of level trail that consists of a gravel base. You follow that briefly and then begin a subtle climb along a deep bench-cut trail, which leads you to an open power line area with a punchy climb with two steep switchbacks. Keep your speed going into them, as traction is difficult here due to the soil composition.

Once up top, you dart back into the woods for a brief section of rolling terrain. Now you exit the canopy into a large field that is an old "stump dump," which is what the locals refer to this section as. It's a steady climb through the field and up a series of bermed corners that lead you to the Bethnal Rd. crossing.

Drop in off Bethnal Rd., and you're met with a very short and slight descent that leads to a fairly sharp descent. The soil here is fairly rocky and loose, so watch your footing. You'll encounter a few dry creek bed crossings. This descent continues all the way to the point where the trail "T's" with The Back 40 Loop - Segment 2: East End Of 340 to Blowing Springs.
