Communication Breakdown starts from a climb up Rock Drop. The first part of the trail is a pedal up through large sweeping berms. The grade is steady but not lung busting.

Be sure to stop and enjoy the views from green rock down across the valley.

The descent on Communication Breakdown is well worth the climb. It's almost a continuous stream of berms to the intersection with Quid Pro Flow.

       Such a waste of a trail, you climb up, get an okay view of Hood, and then..... descend on moderately steep bench-cut. Unfortunately lacks any type of character. The descent isn't "bad", but I'd never call it good.
