Just to the right of the other Downhill section when facing downhill on the upper perimeter, or right at the split coming down from the top of the mountain. Long rock gardens for the first half then the trail flattens out and gets smoother with a couple turns and log step overs leading down to the RTF.

The section at the top before the main rock gardens has a drainage issue and is holding a lot of water making a serious mud strip at the top.
