This is a great downhill trail under tree canopy. The locals refer to this side of the mountain to the Darside. There are some extremely exposed sections and washed away parts of the trail that require dismounts, but all in all this is one of the best rides around. & miles all downhill hello!
As with most trails on this mountain beware of fallen trees and hikers.

 I'd have to take that black diamond off this trail. Just not worth the effort..
