Super fun downhill, with a lot of varied terrain, ranging from smooth and fast sections to somewhat technical and exposed sections. A few easy stream crossings.

       I rode this trail (uphill), and that was a bad choice on my part. Uphill turned into a hike-a-bike for most of the way. All the little water falls everywhere made it worth it though. I would say if you are going to ride this, take it downhill unless you like hiking.

       Really fun downhill. Rocky, rooty, and if you're not careful you may slide off into the creek down below!
