This is a serious DH dropping 1000' in a mile with tight switchbacks and the potential for huge falls. It's also a blast. Just ride within your limits.

       I have ridden this a few years ago and went back today. It has more patches of sand now, I think from recent rains. Also, someone reworked the rocks on the steep switch backs and now your rear triangle or derailleur cannot clear them. So we had to dismount more to get around those this time. Still a blast!
