A ripping section of downhill, that can be taken entirely too fast. Starts with some steep but well built switchbacks, transitions into some flowy sidehill amidst logging operations, and finishes with a supreme section of banks and rollers. Can also be ridden uphill, but watch out for downhill traffic who may be mobbing it.
