Great singletrack that leads to the top of Mule Mountain summit. It can be skinny with shale rocks in some parts. Nice views from the top.

       Not very technical, but a bit exposed and loose. Hard to get good flow on the downhill due to all the loose leaves and sand.

       Combine nonstop with snail trail for a 1000ft plus decent that is arguably the best damn DH in Redding area.
