Steep side hill trail that is mostly downhill on the west face and good both ways on the east face.

Access Info

Trail is best ridden when starting it from the Summer Games trail. When going down on Summer Games, take a sharp left about 100ft after crossing the large log that is across the trail (recently cut) to start the Lower Whoops. Then stay high and avoid the trail that goes down at a fork in the trail. At the south ridge of the mountain, cross over to the east side and stay on the high trail to the back side. The trail end on the east side at a fire road.
