This is an awesome downhill trail. Really fast and flowy at the top. Some gap jumps made from logs will come up on you fast. Trail starts to get really rocky once you hit the ridge. Then the ridge starts to gown down steep and can be loose. Lots of jumps near the bottom. Amazing DH trail Not beginner or intermediate friendly.

       So steep and techie your arms will be happy little noodles by the bottom. First third is fast and flowy through fields of flowers with glorious views of the Tetons. Second third is a steep white knuckler with fun mini kickers interspersed. The third section is a killer free ride trail with optional lines for all levels of maniac. Would ride this again.
