Fast, steep and natural trail; usually ridden downhill. central rocky stretch requires good line choice and is black diamond; lots of railroad ties cut in and eroded; short travel bikes can get get overwhelmed especially with bad shock settings. Fun and short and the roughest trail in the park.

Super loose. Lots of areas where they added gravel making it very sketchy at high speeds

Brush overgrown at the top, poor visibility. Keep an eye out for hikers behind blind corners.
