This trail is probably fun in both directions, but should not be skipped on the way to Ridgeline. Ridden either direction, it's about half descending and half climbing back up. The trail is pretty smooth overall, with some nice flow, and a few features that you can use to spice it up a bit.

      Perhaps one of my favorite DH’s of all time. Starting at White Pine and going down - always faster speeds than Ridgeline for me.

       Only thing wrong with this DH is that it's not 10x longer. Fast shot of adrenaline right to the heart.
