Downhill primary with some narrow trees and a rock garden at the end. Trail starts along the ridge line trail at an acute angle. Halfway down the trail dives right to avoid the connector trail (that circles you back up to the ridge). The trail dumps out on the grassy Hardack XC loop. Classic, bermless, old school VT DH trail

      Freshly fallen leaves all over which will decrease tire grip (was no problem for me with my very nobby tires, at 15-17 psi)

      Couple wet spots, one significant that requires dismounting.
