Top half starts on open shale rock with some a couple fun steeps and a handful of small wedge jumps. About halfway down the trail dips into a canyon with large swooping corners and small hip jump options.

If pedalling up, you can park near the energy plant and head up midday valley road, take the first right onto the switchback road and follow the truck trail all the way to the radio tower.
