One of the best downhills in the area. When combined with Otero Upper, this trail is just crazy fast, flowy, amazingness. For those that want to get tricksy, there are jumps littered throughout the trail as well. Please watch your speed on this portion though as this is a popular destination for hikers as well. Normally most of the hikers don't make it to Otero Upper so that section is a little more clear and you can let it hang out a little more. Be careful of the rock stairs relatively close to the top of this portion; too much speed could doom your descent on these.
If you come out to Cedro/Tunnel/Otero, DO. NOT. MISS. THIS. DOWNHILL.
