Longer, faster and full of corners, this is a must-ride and an alternate route to the Smallwood descent, which shares the same drop-in point, just before the Smallwood lookout.

Tree down blocking the trail 1/2 way down. Will require a saw.

Running well. A few of the corners are pretty dry, but overall great condition.

 Fun downhill ride from the lookout. Lots of switchbacks at the top but the wide trail makes them rideable without being too technical. It gets more flowy half way down. Some loose rock but still quite grippy. At the top there are a few technical rock drops but not too large or long.

 The switchbacks and short steeps were perfect for a blue trail - always a run-out or a berm to save you! Nicely built and maintained.
