Great trail in similar style to others on the hill. Starts with a fairly narrow traverse across the hill with a few small gaps / doubles. This top section is also known as "Johnson's". Pops you out onto Direct Road briefly, before getting into a more steep, chutey, off-camber section with a few small drops at the top that can be sent. This section can be a real mud-slide in the wet. The trail is an easy grade 5 in the dry, and much harder in the wet.
