Iron Gate is a mostly downhill fast and flowy trail. The upper section was recently rebuilt to add more flow and improve sustainability. There is a small wooden drop followed by a short climb in the middle, after which the trail gets a bit more technical and rooty. The trail ends by crossing a narrow wooden bridge over a small creek.
