Don't let the big uphill fireroad in the beginning fool you, it is only about a 100 meters, after that it is a long Downhill trail, please see the description on how to find this trail below.
This trail has everything for a descent EWS stage, single trails, tight steep turns, small jumps, rocky sections and a beautiful scenery.
At the end of the trail you can connect it to Lemonade an easier trail in Angel Fire but very flowy, which is a good wrap up since you will be tired for hitting the brakes so much in Angel's plunge.

Access Info

the access is completely opposite to where the chairlift leaves you, it is clearly marked, the only problem is that one has to go through a 100 meter uphill fireroad which kind of makes one think if you are going in the right direction, after that 100 meter uphill is pure downhill fun.

       Seemed beat up. Didn't seem like this side of the park was maintained a lot.
