Ride Clockwise for a fun, root strewn descent (drop in on the southern end, closer to the coast) Plenty of opportunities to boost over roots, but you can roll them too. Watch for the drop-off/switchback. Climb out was rerouted in 2016 with a pleasant gradient.

Watch out for the last root drop with the sudden right turn - deep silt to fold the front end through! I have never ridden such dry trails - not...

 Definitively not a black diamond - total cross country trail. Maybe a bit more rocky and rooty then most wilder though still really mellow.

 Not a difficult trail - mostly downhill XC trail with fun root drops in the top section. Nice canopy cover compared to most other trails here. Watch out for the last root drop into the right corner - 3-6" of silty dirt - ridden 10-6-16

 I believe the trail direction should state "ride clockwise" if you want to do the more fun root-strewn descent.
