Built in 2007 by Gheorghiu Radu, trailhead at Boul de Piatra (for some time it used to be at the high voltage line). Moderate skills required to descend, problems with pedestrians going up, rain will damage parts of trail often. It is the most accesible DH trail of the city. Since the building of the new West Trail which is bigger and better this is a low priority trail. Maintenance in time by Radu Gheorghiu, Silviu Gheorghiu, Andrei Lazar and George Iorgulescu.
