After climbing Gurley and crossing Mount Marquette Road, Doctors is your first option of descent. The trail starts relatively flat and slowly becomes steepens as you go. Once the trail gets going downhill the ability to blast through rocks and root at high speeds makes this trail very fun to ride. At the end of the trail a small rock slab and a steep roll down over some roots rounds out the trail.
