Short but lively trail. Has a couple drops, some jumps, and a larger stepdown towards the end. The trail also pops out of the trees about halfway down and gives a great view of the surrounding area.

      I like this trail. Nothing too technical - I'd rate it as a hard blue. Fantastic views in the mid part. You can follow with Prison Love which has a similar feel.
