Once at the top of the mountain, begin descending down the backside along one of the best and fastest, albeit short, downhills on the XC loop. There are many line options and some fun, small, rock drop options. After making a hard 90d right turn, you'll start grinding uphill again and eventually come to the most difficult hill climb in the loop. The 'Switchbacks". The Switchbacks are a steep, technical, heart breaking experience for many riders.
