Horse Ridge's main downhill option, the trail starts out a little rocky, but once it drops into the canyon, becomes a fast and flowy downhill. You can get going very fast, but watch out for brake bumps. They can get to be pretty nasty.

 I bet this trail is fun to ride when there are no braking bumps. Definitely not a black diamond either. I would recommend riding escape from Moscow twice (since it's half the climbing) over this run.
