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.

Trail had some major work done to it in Fall of 2022. There is now a Down Hill Only and Climbing Only Section.
