 Amazing scenery aside, this is one of the best descents in WA. There's that beautiful part of sharing trails motos occasionally ride where the trail actually flows for a 2 wheel thing (unlike hiking trails) and there's always just enough of a rut to give you support in every corner. The one word for this trail is FAST! You will be gaping 30 ft out off of 6 inch bumps the whole way without even trying. What a hoot the perfect end to a mega ride!... writing this I guess I should warn you not to kill anyone, be careful around blind corners (luckily most of the trail has great sightlines), don't be the dick that kills someone else's experience; it's just a few corners you have to ease up on to stay safe, life's not a race... despite what Strava tells you.
