Downhill from the dead end this starts with a steep chute, then a short climb and a switchback descent opening up to a meadow with a water tank. below the water tank is a fast wide open section that goes into the trees. once in the trees there is a creek crossing leading to a loose flowy section that puts you back at the trailhead parking lot.
