Helipad AKA "Full Pull" is one of the closest things to a "flow trail" on the mountain as far as DH. Yes there is a flat helicopter access pad at the top and end of the trail. Mostly smooth "singletrack" with several opportunities to reach high speeds for the bike. The saddle provides two options a left/right or north/south short and steep finish to the run ending in the valley's wash below. Helipad also makes a good climb and is often the choice for local time trial bragging rights.

 Great trail - rocky path with few hikers/joggers. Ride up was "fun".
