The final section of the XC loop follows one of the old DH trails down the backside of the mountain to the Perkiomen trail. The Backside DH has several variations, some of which have large rock drops. All the DH features have go-arounds but proceed with caution as the trail is fast but is so much fin, you'll want to ride the loop again just to do it.
