Primarily a downhill trail accessed by a very steep gravel climb. Very remote, high risk factor. Large rock gardens and high speeds. Legend!

Upper looks like it was a running river for a while. Somewhat washed out, big loose rocks. After the river much more rideable.

One giant tree down. Some stuff built up on it. Plenty of time to see it, so no real danger. Trail was in great shape, other than some new...
