This trail between Bayview Sequoia and Sunset Trail is a nice flowy downhill trail that, relatively speaking, is not overly technical nor steep. The trail can be very fast when ridden to potential. It has some jumps (all of which can be avoided), one relatively steep rock garden section that is not as rough as it looks (the potential black diamond portion), and BTCEB recently finished a reroute near the bottom that includes some tight turns (read switchbacks). If you visit Joaquin Miller Park this is a must ride trail. It is rated Black due to relative difficulty to other JMP blue trails.

       The erosion makes that “potential black diamond” section no joke... but it’s still manageable. Speed is your friend. Great trail. Switchbacks at the end require some nifty low speed bike handling.

       Great trail with some fun roughness and tight switchbacks at the end that will test your bike handling skills.

       The light rain has made Cinderella fast and mostly flowy. Go early and set a new PR before all the hikers.
