The non-technical portion of Perimeter on the north-west side of Los Alamos. This trail is fairly flowy with one of the better intermediate descents in Los Alamos if ridden South to North. The fast descent starts at the intersection of Mitchell trail and goes all the way to 3 Bears/Guaje Road. This loop can be linked to other trails to ride all around town or as part of a really big Pipeline/Guaje Ridge/Cabra/Perimeter loop.

       A really fun trail, but it sees A LOT of foot traffic from runners, hikers, and dog walkers, so not a good choice to go all out on, or at least during prime time of day.
