A number of wooden jumps and steep descents. Old school downhill freeriding at its best. Please respect the trail and don't ride in wet or muddy conditions. Ruts don't fix themselves and wood features can be very slippery when wet! Thanks!

Access Info

Follow the ridgeline to the start of Bearded Lady/Rewards/Mr. Lifto. The true entrance is the steep, exposed rock chute straight off the ridge trail, or take the slightly less steep and technical way through the trees to the riders right. At the saddle with the large, natural step-over jump you will see the original, very rutted and mostly unused line drop straight down from the saddle to your left. The current main-line is up the small rise, past the sign, and follow the narrow single track straight down the fall line where it opens up for one of the most exhilarating and steepest sections on the mountain. Stay out of the rut if possible for the most traction and control! Strong brakes and confidence required! At the bottom of the steep the trail continues through the gully, speed and flow increases, and the features start ramping up until you're safely across the creek gap and home free!

 This is easily the best trail on the mountain! Don't let the steep alpine section scare you off. Once you get past the steep section this trail is amazing!
