This trail is the fastest way to ride Pipeline, and the easiest. The climb on Third Gulch is fairly mild. Pipeline offers some steeper sections and two creek crossings. The top end of Pipeline has the steepest sections of this entire ride. After turning around the ride is all downhill to the parking area. Pipeline has some rockier single track that earns it a slightly more technical rating. Third Gulch is straightforward double track all the way to the end. With less time on your hands this is a great ride to get right to the point in Eagle Ranch.
