 I know the news made it sound that way, but reports indicate the the person who fell was not riding at the time.

Note: I am not recommending riding the trail, just filling in some details.

 interesting, since people were saying she wandered out to that one lookout point. Plenty of places to fall over if you are biking through this trail.

 I have biked this trail a bunch of times at off-peak hours - you would really have to ride WAY off trail or do something really bizarre to fall off the edge of the main cliff here - not supporting riding the trail just saying

 There are two specific spots that are right on the cliff face, where a dismount or crash could result in falling. There's also the spot right by the rock lookout where there's a footpath that leads to the cliff. So there's two spots that are on the trail that are very close to the edge. Was just there last week and saw the spots. Very close, no signs.
