CLASSIC!! Do not miss this one! Leaving from the Bottom of Lower Black parking lot, ride up the gravel and pass the rocky exit of Lower Black on your left as you climb up Thrift Cove! At the fork stay left to continue up Thrift Cove. Don't worry it does eventually end! Promise!
After a short descent, the real Lower Black downhill begins as you get to the intersection with the middle section of Black (look to the right and up!)
Enjoy your ride down Lower Black crossing bridges and small rock gardens while riding berms all the way down to the end- popping out on the gravel with a nice armored rock section. From there you can go ahead and do another lap! OR Head back to the parking lot where you started.
