Dropping off of South West Ridge is a fun fast ride with some tricky rocks and some small drops. A short section of old ATV track in the middle hooks you up to some really fun singletrack. The singletrack is powder smooth in some places with a few tricky black rock sections. The rock formations are unique and interesting and provide some difficult but fun transitions.
