This is an iconic local Salt Lake City downhill trail. At the top there is a flat area to congregate and pad up. The first section is typically some fast and rough berms that can get a bit choppy from both the brake bumps and often spring water finds a channel right down the middle.

After that it opens up into big berms with many jump and gap options. This is the trail with the old rusty car gaps.
