Pigs on the Wing is an advanced descending trail on the Westside. It's composed of a series of steep and loose parts and several rock faces interrupted by much easier bits of meandering trail. . A fun trail that Pigs on the Wing is a joy to ride in combination with Short Bus. If you can't easily clean the first chute, consider riding a different trail.
