Hell's Half Acre Map

Hell's Half Acre, much like Hoop Creek, is perfect for the person who wants to get a quick lap in on the pass, because it requires no hiking. From the parking lot at the top of the pass go due north and you will be at the top of Hell's Half Acre. The zone has some larger openings in the trees, and you can often find kickers in several different parts of it. It ends directly at a road switchback on the north side of the pass.
