Probably the most popular downhill trail on Doi Suthep Pui and it's easy to see why. The trail is fast and flowy; it has quite a few jumps plus a few technical challenges, all of which increases the fun factor. It starts on Sriwichai Rd. a few bends below Puping Palace and ends in Mae Hia behind the airport. Difficulty is medium. The trail begins with a series of jumps followed by a forested flow section. Expect plenty of roots and ruts, a few short steep sections, natural berms, and don't miss the view on the right hand sight towards the neighbouring Ob Khan national park. The soil is loamy at the top and rocky and loose at the bottom. Watch out for low hanging bamboo.
