 One of the best steep rides in the area. A lot more tech than is seen in the region. It is basically a fall line trail with lots of rocks and slow tech to then some fast tech. Right now there are a lot of fallen trees that stop the flow in a few spots. Has a lot of potential though. A slower more challenging version of Mill D

 Way way way more technical than Desolation just next door. Not even the same category. Desolation isn't a black

 I agree Desolation down is not bad, but it is really a difficult climb up, and harder then most the surrounding trails. Not sure if it should be intermediate or should just mark this trail as double diamond

 Steep, loose, and techy. Make sure your brakes are in working order before going down this trail.
