Rock Garden is the appropriate name for this trail. You'll see everything from baby-heads to pumpkin size rocks and lots of them. The upper half is less technical and higher speed than the lower half, but it's still plenty rocky. The second half will be significantly challenging for anyone but very experienced riders, and even they will have a hard time hitting every line just right. This is one of the most popular descents in San Luis Obispo.

Upper half fully trimmed! Most loose boulders removed and ruts more or less filled. Best condition in a while!
