A perennial favorite DH in the Blue Diamond/Cottonwood area. Not overly technical, with good flow and speed. Preferred direction is Northbound (downhill), though many riders tie in with Badger Pass and ride up to the top of this DH to get the full smile (Dwight Robertson)

Dry...but not dusty and blown out. Good condition for this time of the year. Must've been the recent thunderstorms.

 Recent thunderstorms have lightly washed the trail to pure flowy goodness. Not dusty at all and an all around blast of a ride. A few baby heads to contend with here and there...but that just addsnto the awesomeness of the ride.
