Lower section of the Cannell Plunge. Fun trail going down, with some buff sections, but lots of big rocks with flat rocks and little drops.

      About 4 down trees near Cannell meadow but good shape overall. Plunge was recently trimmed and is in outstanding shape. Special thanks to whomever...

      Fields of snow in top half, passable on the motos but a bit too much for MTBs. Bottom half is dry. A few fallen trees.

       Fun descent. Very loose and sandy. The upper portion with all the rocks and flow is my favorite part, the bottom half with all the fast sidehill with loose rocks and hairpins is my least favorite part. Be careful its easy to get going too fast and boom off the trail you go. Posted a vid of the final descent in the video tab to give ya an idea.
