Starting in the iconic alpine meadow that lures in most riders, be wary as the peaceful looking trail quickly changes. Typically the go-to descent from Cherry Tops, heavy erosion over the years has made several sections pretty gnarly but things are slowly improving. Ends on the 16km spur of the Grohman FSR nearly across from the mid-entrance into Swampdonkey.

      I would optimistically say there’s over 20 trees down on this trail. You can barely ride the middle section as you are constantly stopping to...
