Allows a good loop to be made to/from West Spruce/Bonanza/Thumb Butte Rd. Has now been adopted and implemented as part of the Williams Peak #738 trail. The old section through the creek has been naturalized.

       Fun down. Random jump options that are fun and not too intimidating. One short section goes through ravine. Wet after rains but rideable when dry.
      The trail getting to this is highest withviews of skull valley n Prescott.

       Good descent. Rowdy at the top with rocky loose and ledgy sections. You lose elevation quickly and then start more flowy riding through the creek, with some chunky change ups. Beyond that to the bottom it's buff hardpack then decomposed granite to finish before ending on Thumb Butte Road. I alternate descending this trail and West Spruce Ridge when connecting in from West Spruce 264. I've climbed it as well but the upper section required some hike a bike.
