This is a downhill specific trail through a jumble of sandstone and juniper. It is amazing that there is a rideable line through this area. You have to pay attention every inch of the way. With proper line choice, there is nothing you cannot roll down. It is really a matter of how much you dare to get off the brakes. Most of this trail is on bedrock, so route finding is not easy until you learn the trail.
