This trail offers the best technical features for the advanced rider. It heads down through four switchback turns followed by several technical rock gardens. The trail then transitions back to mostly packed dirt as it winds its way back up to the overlook. The newly built overlook has a beautiful view of the Mississippi River Valley. In the winter months keep an eye out for Bald Eagles.
