Super fun techy rocky downhill with some exposure and great views! I've ridden it only as a long loop from gooseberry but most people shuttle it. Lots of bonus lines and creativity within the trail. The stonework holding the trail up along the mesa is incredible. Props to the creators! Check out the ghost town below! If you've ridden everything at gooseberry and want something more challenging and dh check out grafton. There are lots of side trails get the cotton map from over the edge
