“Fun and fast downhill from the Tower of Power down to the trailhead. Keep an eye out for hikers coming up the hill”

This trail is best ridden as a downhill from the Tower of Power (high-tension powerline tower) to the trailhead. It is fast and has some steep sections but is suitable for all skill levels. Be mindful of uphill foot traffic on this section. Use Gully or Sweet Shady North to make a nice short loop out of this trail.
