This is good times for all experienced riders with descent flow mixed amongst some surfy steeps and fast traverses. After second road crossing, the trail cruises parallel and directly beneath the Copper Mountain FSR and will naturally merge into a fast ending at the Blindside sign.

       Old school trail with steep loam and some in shape and some rather out of shape woodwork.
