Mostly smooth, fast singletrack that follows the top of an exposed ridge before it becomes a series of switchbacks in the side of the terrain. From the top, the first drop is steep and fast. Beware of ruts. Keep an eye out for your right turn off the ridge to follow the trail, otherwise you'll be taken down a technical, rocky, steep option that only the most advanced riders, with full suspension, should tackle (see map where the option cuts north, while the trail proper is a right turn into a valley. Shared with hikers.
