Fast open start leading into some tighter and more technical sections. Nothing steep though, all pretty mellow.
Not sure if the trails been extended and not updated, but at the end of the GPS track you can continue straight across the road to a very new and primative trail that will meet up with the end up lower Wasabi. That section is loose, off-camber and gnarly, but super fun.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       Should be a Blue trail. Rideable both directions. The upper part in the meadow needs some re-design to stop it from going directly down the fall line.
