Awesome trail to descend. One of my favorites. Good for all levels of rider. Just plan the ride on a quiet day when there are few hikers around.

Super fun fast descent. Very much different than your usual Bellingham trail. Watch out for hikers though as you're booking around lots of blind corners. This trail is definitely NOT "Unsanctioned". Don't believe those elevation stats either, this is not even close to a 2300 ft descent.
