Steep and absurdly technical alpine-style trail dropping from Angora Lakes trailhead down to Fallen Leaf. Upper half is mostly rideable by a skilled rider, while the lower portion can be cleared only by a select few. Odds are better for you if you have solid trials technique. Mandatory hike-a-bike uphill.

 Super fun technical descent for skilled riders, or riders looking to better their technical descending skills.
