Classic old school single track. If you go the original way off the Ridgemont Road you get a steepish climb to the start of the down. Beautiful trail that really flows and is nice and shady on a hot day. You'll see the remains of an old trapper cabin at the summit.

Access Info

Either go pretty much straight across from Eco on Ridgemont Road for an utterance that involves a pretty sharp climb near the start. Otherwise go in from the much mellower entrance of Kids Stuff.
