Rolling, mostly smooth singletrack near the bottom climbs steadily along Froom Creek and becomes progressively "toothier" from the intersection of Canyon View till it's end. Great ridden either way, but many enjoy it as a purely fun and fast descent. It can very fast but also very marbly with loose nuggets over hardpack. Caution as a higher speed "get off" will not end well due to terrain composition as well as the close proximity to an abrupt exposure dropping straight off the edge to the rocky creek way below.

 Loose, not recomended. Nice view tho. I’d prob never ride this trail again, unless by accident. Look for alternative.
