This is my favorite loop of the entire trail system. The climb up is pretty easy with a few little rocky sections, even a little double step up. There are plenty of hair pin turns, but most all are bermed pretty good and wide. There is a nice little rock bench at the top, before you hit the downhill. This section of downhill has be berms that are bit tight be they drop so fast and are so wide that you can really take them fast. Several sections will throw you through some big rocky sections that little rocks to jump off. I like to just climb up and do loops of this top sections.

       Tight berms and some rocky, technical sections. Beautiful riding through the aspen forest. Really enjoyed this downhill!
