This is the Finale area trail on which most of the photos are taken. That lovely blue ocean is immediately beneath you (unlike most of the other trails further up the hill). It is also a perennial trail of the season ending EWS event. If you go to Finale, you have to try DH Men.
But be warned! This sucker is difficult. It is steep. It is rocky. And that rock is crumbling so it is also covered in lots of loose stuff. Traction is low.
The view and the riding are fantastic though - so worth the challenge.

 Conseguir bajar sin poner el pie ya es un reto. Muy pendiente y con grava suelta.
