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

       Rode this from dog lake to desolation lake as a noob, and loved it! Walked perhaps 1/6 of it. Gorgeous aspen meadows.
