Blurred Vision/One Way Hills
Once you're ready to start out, ride in the drainage ditch until you can get back up close to the fence; about 20m. Let the mad bombers in your group go ahead of you (I usually go near last unless I've had a lot of coffee that day). Look at the trail in front of you as you go down (not at the 4-foot drop-off into the deeply eroded red clay and rocks on the left, nor at the chain-link fence 6 inches away from your right handlebar that would just love to grab your bar-end and throw you into the afore-mentioned erosion gully) since bikes have this tendency to go wherever your attention is focused. Near the bottom there's a bend to the left, still along the fence. Immediately after you cross the drainage ditch at the bottom, crank your bars around to the left to climb away from the fence. Once you start back downhill again, look to the left and you will see a sign nailed to a tree that says "Waterfight". There's a gate in the fence to the right, and the trail ahead is definitely doubletrack. Back and to the left is some overgrown singletrack that was probably cut by the bird collectors you sometimes see in the area; it goes back in along a ridge for a fair distance but dead-ends.
And speaking of mud, the bottom of the second dip is almost always a wide swath of the gooey stuff, with a sharp uphill right turn on the opposite side. This is another place to let your friends go first, so you can gauge how they handle the conditions. After this it's a fairly flat, sometimes undulating run until you come to a dead-end gate, turn left up the hill and follow the fence into One-Way Hills
One Way Hills
The names says it all.. pretty complicated especially when wet. It starts with a narrow patch along a fence-line, don't look to your left -- the drop-off will steal all your focus. Once on the big hill, the trail switches back a few times when you least expect it and has a few sudden surprise rises. It finishes with a nice steep drop -it's ridable if you don't stop to look at it. From there, follow the trail past the cactus field (Stay out of the field itself) to a dirt road, take a left up the road and keep bearing left until you come to the main highway. From here you can take a left to La Luge or a right to Mudrock.
