From the southern intersection with trails 341 and 230a dirt single track climbs moderately steeply to the north. The climb is punctuated with intermittent technical features: narrow boulder roll ups set between rocks, tight twisty switchbacks through boulder fields. Along the way are a few more advanced technical features if you keep your eyes open. Just past the top of the climb are two steep roll downs that are fairly technical. You cross an arroyo and meet a couple of difficult rock wall climbs. At short ways past this more advanced technical sections you reach the very top of the trail and descend to the west. The descent is fast, twisty, and choppy, but without any large drops. There are a couple of jumps off of larger boulders if you want to add some spice to what is already a fun descent.
