Very technical descent through an old pine forest with steep rock faces and chutes. There are a few cruxes involving tight turns and bridge features with lots of exposure, but traction is excellent in dry conditions.

The trail is hard to find and follow at times so have somebody who knows it well show you the way.

Disclaimer

Very steep technical descent.

       Great trail, but Expert only. Do not bring your non-expert friends. It is not a easy hike a bike.

      If you love a 3-4 min it's steep slab, this is the closest you'll get east of BC.

       Steep! Rode it twice, knowing the trail 2nd time down didn't make it any easier. Full commitment to ride down this trail down. Hiking down with bike is in fact harder.
