 Sick trail! Would 100% ride with someone who has ridden this trail before. Nothing is marked.

 Fantastic trail! Compared to Grafton DH it was much steeper and looser at times. Rock rollers aren't super straight forward so scouting is a good idea. Videos don't do the trail justice, much steeper in person. Rode the trail in October and the conditions were great. If you do the trail as a shuttle it's a paved road to the top.
