Tunnel Vision: is almost a complete loop that skirts around the first hill on both sides of the main trail. From the bottom intersection where Tunnel Vision crosses the main fire trail (the end of this video)
- if you head right: Tunnel Vision (north), it will take you up to the intersection of Worm Juice, Bovine Groove, Number 7 and of course the Tunnel.
- if you head left: Tunnel Vision (south), it will take you past the intersection of Number 7 and around to Bovine Groove, about halfway down the lower section of the trail.
This video is of Tunnel Vision (south) to the intersection of Number 7 and then all the way to the end of Number 7.
You would expect that this trail has a significant climb however it's far from it. There's a saddle between the first hill and the final climb which means this trail skirts around the hill and reconnects with the main fire trail on the other side at the saddle without gaining much altitude at all. The trail certainly undulates, meaning there's a lot of pedalling but it's not much of a climb at all, for the most part it's a cruisy XC with a few switchbacks to climb and descend.
The narrow trail has it's rough moments, a number of them testing your focus and momentum as you try to navigate dips and switchbacks, however for the most part this trail is pretty straight forward and rideable by anyone with single track experience.
This trail was not as energy zapping as I expected.
