An old school technical test piece that drops steeply from the intersection with the Sypes Canyon Trail. Expect steep, loose and technical riding with exposure (one 90 deg turn to be specific) off the top becoming more manageable the lower you get. After crossing the drainage at the bottom of the initial descent, a short climb will bring you to a long traverse across the foothills of the west side of the Bridgers. The closer you get to the parking lot, the busier it will get. Ride respectfully. This trail is subject to the Trail time share plan which prohibits mountain biking on Saturdays from June 16- Sept 5.
