Going down this after the Lightening Switch is the preferred direction. This trail can be fast in places, but it can be very loose as well. Lots of golf ball and softball size rocks can make picking your line sketchy. A hard rain can wash it out as well. That said, it is a fun and rowdy downhill ride. No features or drops really, but some fast shoots and lots of rocks. The upper section you encounter a bit of roots, but that quickly turns to just loose rubble.

       That's a shame. I heard some horses post-holed it a few weeks back too.

       The Dixie Mountain Bike Trails Association will be working on cleaning this trail up and making it more sustainable this summer/fall of 2017.
