Super rocky with drops, table tops, and gap jumps. Super sketchy near the top, where it's more rocky.

 Fun descent. It isn't really a double black. Some solid single black sections that are fun.

 Nascar is blown out with many of the features rounded and abated by hikers or county workers. Like most SD County gravity trails the "nimby's" do not them or dumb them down for access to more less skilled riders. A good shirt tech challenge line as you bust a lung working the others lines up and down
