More traditional singletrack than freeride, these shady "switchberms" offer the easiest descent to River Run Plaza. Connect from Warm Springs via the Traverse Trail or join with Mindbender or Pale Rider for a fast downhill experience (available for multidirectional hiking & biking before or after lift operating hours July - September).
