From bottom to top. This trail starts with good trail riding and then enters into the down section with great berms. Once down you have one section of steep climbing left and then a long gradual up hill climb. This trail ends in the middle of Race Course leaving you to climb the long hill or finish Race Course.
From top to bottom. The trail follows down and crosses the hiking trails several times. About half way the trail flows into sweeping turns that are super fun. There is an optional jump and you blast down to the bottom. The climb back up is steep but the bermed switchbacks help.
