      Climbed up Farris and point lookout which was a LOT of climbing but the 409.5 was so worth the hour 20 something climb for 12 minutes of DH. The trail does have moto bumps - isn't singletrack the whole way - is difficult to access without a shuttle BUT this is one rowdy fast descent. One of my favorites. If ur not into bumps roots and gnarly trail conditions stay away if you approciate speed and rowdy descending this is the trail for you!

      Don't listen to the haters, this is probably the best decent in CB. Steep, loose and fast!

      If you want to climb for hours to get to a moto trail you are stoked. Braided ruts up high and wide moto beat to hell down low.
