Turn after turn after turn. Berms are pretty good so you can hit them pretty good, but still really tight. Fast sections between the turns, so you work your brakes as you come into each turn. Berms are all pretty smooth so climbing isn't bad. The bottom is a fast drop, but really hard grunt up, but only for the first 30 meters or so. So don't get discouraged when you see the first climb from the Colters/Mill Creek intersection.

       My wife and I saw this trail on the map and just had to go up it. It did not disappoint, plenty of switchback practice great vertical gain and amazing views or the Tetons near the top to keep you going or give you an excuse to stop and take a photo.
