The best you can really say about this is that it is the last section of dirt before city creek. At least it’s downhill only now.

Really fun trail with lots of jumps. Very flowy and was a ton of fun to ride.

The trail is pretty fun. Nothing too crazy except one area with tons of large rocks. Could see how that area would cause some issues. Just noting, it seems most people go up this. It is much more fun going down. So, if going down - be ready to have to slow down in some of the blind corners/turns.
