If you are looking for the gem and icon of West Mag then here it is! Fun and flowy downhill sections that will leave you wanting more. Known as Bus 'n Shack to the locals because there is a School Bus and Shack where the trail used to go through. The trail was rerouted east of this bus and shack due to drainage issues but can still be seen near the end of the trail if you stop and look. If you find yourself riding next to the creek then you just passed it!

The two downed trees at the start of the descent are stilp there. They are very obvious.

Watch for a couple fallen trees. I thought I was low enough for one of them and I wasn’t. ????
