This is the downhill direction of Roller Coaster trail, which is named for its several swooping and fast mini descents followed by rapid rises. Follow it along, crossing the gravel Firelane Extension trail once and then ending on the same gravel trail. The loop on the west side of Fire Lane Extension trail was recently rebuilt to be more sustainable with a flowy, fast, and fun new section that includes several log piles and small jumps.
This trail is one of the longer contour line singletrack trails in the park. That said, you can also connect it to IMBA trail and Concrete Block trail to form different loops.
The primary entrance starts off of the upper section of IMBA trail.
