It's a surfing descent. So fun. The sand is thick and deep and really only meant to be descended. It will put a smile on your face.

The upper portion of the trail between 2300-3000 is heavily overgrown. Not worth the ride.

Fast and flowy trail but tons of brake bumps! Too rough to be much fun downhill.

Super fun. Fast n flowy with nice turns. Take caution on blind turns when going downhill to riders coming up. You can carry serious speed on the straight, wooded section. Another fav of mine.

Trail Trail 62
My favorite trail in the area. Because: you can’t see where you are going. The trail is so twisty and the waist high brush only let’s you see about ten meters forward. But when you get it dialed, it’s so fun. Works great in both directions.

Medium tree down blocking trail halfway down gets on you pretty quick after if you are carrying good speed. Must stop and climb over.
