Incredible trail that winds down the mountain in over 20 switchbacks. Trail is steep and the switchbacks have some exposure but overall it is fully rideable for an advanced rider. Kudos to the trailbuilders for incredibly built turns in difficult terrain The best part is the tails passes under a natural arch!

This trail is unsanctioned.

       This trail is worth doing at least once but jabbarocky is hands down a more fun descent.

       Really cool trail for the arch and the views, but the riding was only okay. A great test of your breaks and balance, but not much for speed or flow. Would suggest jabba first.
