This trail is not for the faint of heart, or inexperienced rider. It begins with a shale entrance that should be taken slowly as it is very easy to pickup unwanted speed. It is a loose section that can make for some great controlled brake-carves. There is a good meeting point at the end of the shale to wait for any friends that are joining. Although the rest of the trail ahead is not shale, it does get steeper (yes, steeper) once you enter the trees. It’s recommended that you give each rider a fair lead before following, as it is very difficult to restart the descent once you have come to a complete stop on the slope. Also loose rocks are often dislodged while descending, and sent towards any rider below you.

The trail is not regularly maintained, and due to its aggressive pitch there is often deep ruts from erosion, exposed roots, and rock. There are a few catch berms to slow you down during the run, but expect to be using your brakes for the duration of the ride.
