All mountain trail that meanders back and forth, at times pedally. Some technical bits and steeper sections will challenge the intermediate rider. Trail abruptly ends at a t-junction on the BP after a steep fall line chute. Turn left then head down Skid Rd for a rubble fest that will take you to Skid Road Reroute offering an option to climb sections of No Quarter or continue to Lower Dreamweaver by descending further down Skid Rd and hanging a left.
