This is a non-motorized multi-user trail. To find the start head downhill from the Dome summit with the gazebo platform on your left. Keep straight when you see the Slide trail going right. The first section is a series of steep descents. It then mellows out and follows the ridge with amazing views of town and the river. The trail then turns very steep (double black diamond) before meeting the Moosehide Village trail at a T-intersection. Turn left and follow this trail back in the direction of town to arrive at the rocky Moosehead Slide (which will require a hike-a-bike).
