Primarily downhill trail used to drop off The Crest, but I do see people trying to ride up it almost every time I ride it. There are many water bars made from small logs, which makes climbing very hard, but descending a blast.

 How is this a black? There are just as technical features on Mill D and it is a blue, rightly so.

 Don't go downhill on a weekend as it is a busy hiker access. Crowds ruin flow.

 Super killer trail. Going up is not as bad as it is made out to seem. Coming down is even more fun
