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.

Chunky up top. Dry and dusty just space yourselves out. That was a long blast with varied terrain and dirt.
