Just about the only way down if you're staying to the east of PowerLine road. There are a few tricky rocks that can be difficult at first. You build speed fast after the first couple of rocks; as it is usually a hard-packed smooth trail traversing the edge of the hill. Keep looking ahead because there are a few rocks that can trip you up if you've decided to ride this part fast. Once you reach the end of the hillside; it's a flat, off camber, loose rock righthand sweeper. Then a steep, and loose set of s-turns before shooting you towards a long, wide, somewhat intimidatingly steep decent to Snake Run trail. Just keep it pointed straight and you'll be fine.
