Unique, fun, and semi-technical in places. This descent is like none other! Can be extremely loose in places, also be ware of motorcycles coming up the trail!

 Rode yesterday. Poor/loose trail conditions due to excessive motorcycle use compared to just 6 months ago. Great MTB trail/flow when in good condition, but not now. Used to be one of my favorite trails in the Springs.
