Very steep downhill that has recently been reworked and reopened. Expect to to be surfing down very steep sections of dirt, nuts (or female equivalent) buzzing on the back tire. Make all the switchback and you're a ninja biker. Kicks you out on Splitting Bears.

Access Info

Head to the junction of Rifle Range Road and Bear Chutes, what most people would call the 'start of the Big Money climb'. With your back to that climb head down Bear Chutes in the opposite direction. It actually heads up a steep section before you get to the down. At the peak of the climb you'll see some logs and a fire pit. Walk into the bush a few feet to your right and the trail starts there.
