Very fast and smooth. Gets a lot of sun, so is usually one of the first trails to dry out in the spring. Good switchback practice.

      Pretty fun if you can get there. Only a few footprints, no tire tracks/ski tracks/etc. Drop the seatpost and get off the back and let her rip

       One of the top descents in the Rattlesnake and the entire Missoula area especially when combined with Lower Fence line for a great Sawmill Gulch ride.
