Same entry as the Freehub magazine route, but take a left on Daniels to come out at the Falls. From the top of Daniels its a fast, rocky, steepish downhill with a couple smaller drops. After this you will hit a flat area with a few creek crossings, some having bridges. Rooty, fun, techy stuff to play on. Third section is another good downhill run down to the falls. All around whorter than the freehub route but still worth the ride.

Tree down about halfway down around a blind corner. It can be ridden under but it's easy to hit your head on it.
