    I have a few theories.

    All of which are 50-100% higher than anything in the Don.

    Unless you're west of Gates Gully... then I got nothing.

    Should I drop hints?

    It's near the fence... just past the tree with the moss on it, just before the abandoned bald tire... you can't miss it.

    That's more than enough hints.

    I'm placing my final bet.

    Since it seemed unfamiliar, that was my first thought as well, however his accompanying scenery pictures were clearly E of GG. I'm also betting that he wouldn't want to ride his bike back up the incline of the only road that accesses that area.

    Well to the east, there is at least one former DH line I'm thinking of that follows that general form, but has four or five moderate-sized trees down (blocking it) directly downhill from that curve.

    All the drop lines in Highland Creek I can think of off-hand have more root-balls per meter than that photo suggests.

    I have been told there is something near the end of Markham Rd. But I think it's one of those things that is found when it is time to discover it. As it should be.

    A minor correction: There is nothing near the end of Markham Rd.

    But there was.
