Slalom style trail, doubles and drops. Not as hard as it once was due to gaps being filled with wood or dirt to decrease the consequences, but still the most difficult trail on Mt Washington. The second drop is the largest (roughly 8 feet).
Once you hit trail speed, it's smooth as butter, corners usually hold up well over the season, and less Jerry's than on the other trails. Small tech section at the bottom. Definitely the best trail on the hill.
