Better yet is a fantastic singletrack that departs Poker Flat and heads back towards Downieville, the "Sunshine Trail" it goes to the Gibraltar Mine and connects to the east end of Chimney Rock Trail. It's on that Downieville singletrack vid, and it's a workout!

That is a good vid showing what it is like going north out of Poker Flat. Viewers don't be fooled though, that vid could have been 4 times longer. It is a long hill. On a light bike it is fun.

Hey Juan, is Sunshine Trail the official name of that single track. We always called it Gibraltar.
