A short but fun alternate to Roller Coaster. This trail starts with a steep fall line descent into a hard right turn over a log pile. It winds through some valleys, one with a short but narrow bridge over it, and crosses over a few log piles. Near the end you can decide to either climb back up to Roller Coaster, or descend down to the lower parking lot.
