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.

 This is one of the longest, steepest and funnest up hills ever. Some sections are super steep but traction is great and there are no tricky parts so you can focus on the climb.
