Called "Black Powder" for a reason. In dry conditions, there is deep moon dust on this trail.
Steep downhill connector from the Cosens Bay Road to Cosens Valley Express Trail.
Rated as a Blue difficulty, but be aware it is "Dark Blue".
Great connector if you want to hit Cosens Bay for a swim after riding Twisted Sister and Crash of '08.
