Missing Links, sometimes called Missing Lynx, is a mountain-bike only trail connecting from the bottom of Lower Bull Gap trail to the Four Corners intersection and trailhead. Typically ridden downhill, this trail is a mix of narrow single-track with some technical rocky sections but also some lightly bermed and flowy turns. The trail briefly joins 2080-200, and some people call the section above that intersection upper Links and call the section below lower Links. Missing Links also crosses Upper Eastview (currently unsigned), providing some loop opportunities. Various brief side spurs with jumps and other features add some spice to the route.
Started as a rogue trail, Missing Links was incorporated into the Ashland Trails Plan by AWTA in 2011 and confirmed as legitimate trail in late 2015.
