Downhill Flow Trail, that starts out from Eve's Gulch with some steep switchback climb. The main downhill trail is fast and flowing with big berms and high speed. Plenty of little air-out spots along the way down. A classic trail that has been in Sun Valley for years

      Few trees still down on the trail. Significant snow cover, probably done for the season!

      8 or so old fire burned trees down across the trail in the beginning part of forbidden fruit. Otherwise, riding through the gulch was a hoot.

       Built super well but probably the worst dirt ever, mostly loose shale rock.

       Awesome trail. Pedaled up Sunnyside to access. I was not prepared for a jump/flow trail in the middle of Forest Service land. A little dusty, but still very fast and fun.

       Solid trail, loose dirt, and there is a tree down part way up the uphill section just before it starts.
