Starting from the road near the Observatory, a straight downhill section going left at the early fork. There is a drop as you cross the Upper perimeter trail, then a bit of rocks and roots till you cross the fire road. After the firewood there is a long section of rock gardens if you stick to the right side of the trail, with a smoother section on the left. The trail ends with a a few fast sweeping turns that lead out of the woods and down to the start of the fire road.
