A fast fun twisty way down to the Winter Clove resort. It has the usual Round Top rock, but is solid and not the loose shale you'll find elsewhere. Plenty of roots as well, but the trail is built in such a way you can carry your speed and not have to slog through slow rock and root sections. Some tight tree clearance here and there, but nothing too bad (my 800mm bars fit with room to spare). A few rocks and roots you you pop off off if you want to.

Best ridden downhill, but would be a fun trail up for those who like challenging technical climbs. Visibility can be tricky with the trees and turns so use caution (or a bell).
