Bike only way down to Aro Valley avoiding the last part of Transient (i.e no more walkers). Starts with a couple of reasonable jumps and winds down the valley via a series of bermed corners and man-made features. There's a big drop off half way down, avoidable if you take the right-hand line (this is also steep, but not vertical!). Big props to Brooklyn Trail Builders who have turned what used to be a dump into a near perfect piece of singletrack.

This track is running great, and even better that its for bikes only! Second time riding it, runs great, is a good way to finish off a ride.

 Hi. Can we please leave this as a black diamond? It reflects the fact it is signposted advanced by the WCC. Some might disagree, but it would be ideal to show as more difficult than Transient. Cheers.
