Very nice trail, fast in the upper section and gets better and more interesting towards the bottom. Definitely try it when you are in the area

Trail Up 'n' Over
This trail is bidirectional, but marked as DH only.
It's not necessarily the _funnest_ trail to claim, but it's doable, and keeps you out of the sun and the fire roads.

Large tree down across trail, blocking trail in the middle section just below Twister junction. Looks like the builders are on it but ride with caution until work is complete. Thanks to the builders for clearing lots of windfall already! reporter
