Great ride down, but watch out for the two creek crossings and root systems from trailside trees.

Head up the trail. At the fork, head left as the sign suggests. This is very much a one way loop. Climb for a while. Check out the old mine entrance halfway up. At the top, strap on your pads and rip down.
You will see hikers coming up the downhill occasionally.
There's a lot of fast trail, and only a few blind sharp corners, so you can go pretty fast.

There's some small jumps/bumps, but nothing mandatory or large. Berms on most corners, but there's a few spots with steep drops on the side of the trail.
