Hawksnest is one of the best trails in the Brown's Ranch system. Running it from East to West provides you some great flow, near constant downhill and sustained speed if you can properly lay your bike over. It is hard to say if it is better than High Desert (another top trail in the system), but I give it the nod simply because it is a bit longer. Solid trail, definitely green in difficulty...can be enjoyed by people of all skill levels, but beware of people coming E to W with high speed.
