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.

Little bit dry and loose, but still very rideable.

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