Great bi-directional trail. It is a great switchback climb and a decent descent at slower speeds. It's a great way to start off a lake loop ride.

       This trail kicks so much ass, it's smooth, fast and winds around the mountain with a bit of exposure. Not too much in the way of super tight slam on the brakes switch backs, and is usually worth climbing once just to ride back down, then climb back up again to do a full loop. A staple in every visit to MSM.
