A functional connector to other trails with little else to justify its existence.

Description

Known as "4 Corners," the start of 8-Ball is actually the de facto start/end of seven trails; Bart, Moab, Flynnagain, Beach, Dos Equis, 8-Ball, and an unnamed connector with Backyard.

Running east, 8-Ball begins with a demanding descent into the valley from the ridge above. A steep slope, loose gravel, hard-rock protrusions, narrow tread and steep exposure all make this perhaps the most interesting part of the trail. Once you have cleared the hill, you are on the central valley floor on doubletrack with no distinct trail to follow. The value of this trail is principally in the fact that it will take you somewhere else.

The central valley in this system has little to offer; doubletrack abounds and the trail system is undefined and convoluted. 8-Ball gets you through this and to the eastern trails that are much more satisfying to run.

Runners use this trail to get out to Champagne, and run north, or hook up with Liberty Bell and head south.
