This is tough. Steep rock love fest. Loose but not too fast.

Access Info

After the usual traverse to access most of the upper trails, head down and straight across the open meadow (now regenerating), snake through the forest on fast twisties, then enter slower, steeper area with multiple lines, ruts, troughs, and eroded bits -- general "cowpocalypse" terrain.

Follow this down until it intersects Menagesha-Suba Forest Road, where you can then pick up 777 Trail just below. There's a very short (30 seconds max) little tech DH detour off the left of Menagesha-Suba Forest Rd and when you exit that track, you need to make a sharp uphill right back on the road and climb a minute to the 777 Trail trailhead. Or you could skip the DH detour and just cruise onto 777 Trail.
