Hey Juan, is Sunshine Trail the official name of that single track. We always called it Gibraltar.
That's it- same thing. The Sunshine Trail (Gibraltar) name is what they call it now on the local Trail Map, avail in Downieville at the mountain bike outfitters. Great map!

Nice and quiet and private. TONS of stars at night. Good parking/camping spots. Close to enough trails without a plate.
