The trail is also known as Canada Cup, and is signed this way on the mountain. The trail starts off steep with a rock garden and small rock drop as a gateway. It then gets even steeper before hitting the road on the switchback corner. From here you can choose to continue down Canada Cup or Jawbone. Canada Cup from the corner mellows significantly and is one of the better options for riders unfamiliar with the mountain or new to downhill riding in general. The section from here to the bottom can be considered intermediate with some more technical sections but generally flowing narrow singletrack.

Trail starts off on the Ridgeline connector
