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 fun decent. Loose rocky shoot after upper right turn with big drops. Good advice about the tree. Get your chest into the seat.
