The first part of this trail is fast and just rips down the mountain. It takes you over to this little basin that gives some cool turns near the rocks, and there is a little hidden alternate trail that gives you a small drop off. Once you get to the big intersection, the trail continues fine, but I prefer to take other options. Either go for the technical or the ultimate fast flow trail can be found with Bullwinkle

      Dry weather this year has caused the tracks to get really beat up.

       This is a very good trail, way better than Bullwinkle down

       Sidewinder is a hoot, and a good taste of backcountry-style technical singletrack for riders who aren't quite ready for Sticks 'n Stones.
