Starting from the summit of Perry Hill, all your climbing will be rewarded with a fast, flowy, at-times technical decent. Don't be fooled - this isn't a 'flow trail' but more of a classic Vermont downhill. There are definitely some advanced moves on Spear, but overall it's all-rider friendly. At the bottom you can continue descending on Rastaman or use Scotch Tape to get back to the bottom of Permission and Joe's.
