Fall line downhill trail off North Rim. Most of this trail is less technical than alternatives such as Live Oak and Red Bud. However, this trail is very steep and pretty much a straight line down. Very easy to come into the rock gardens near the intersection with Upper Upper with way too much speed. The very top of this trail is also pretty rocky and steep.
