Steep, fast, technical descent from the top of Pajarito Ski Area. Best ridden as a shuttle to the ski area, then climb 1000'+ to the top of the ski area on Aspen for Trouble or jeep roads, ride either Nail Trail or Camp May Road Trail at the end to get back to town. This trail was recently rebuilt and is in great shape as of fall, 2014.
