Alternate Descent from ski hill road instead of Verboten

Twisty flowing downhill. Good fun, but over way too quick. Most will carry on up to Verboten for the longer ride. Moderate drops.

Access Info

Climb Gorby Road to the top, take a right up the ski hill road and follow for 300m, trail will be on the right.

 Short and fairly narrow, technical trail. Some small root and rock drops and burned corners. I would classify it as an intermediate to advanced trail. It was a grind up Gorby to get there, but worthwhile.
