As the name states, it is on the southern side of the ridge which is shadowed, hence turning everything to slime whenever it is wet. Some really fun and flowy section at the top in to tighter, slippery off camber trail that winds down through trees and some root sections.

This original Slides trail is now considered unsanctioned, but is accessible off the new Slides alignment.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
