This trail focuses on FLOW. There are a few switchbacks but for the most part they are bermed and wide enough to keep your speed. This is the primary route to use to get to the upper Pattee Creek trails higher up in the canyon.

       Always a blast to come flying down the MoZ. Worth the climb up the road a couple of times and earn the reward of a wide open switchback with some long fast stretches.
