For a long time this trail was both a climb and descend trail. Since the Armstrong Trail (Uphill Only) was built, this trail has been commonly referred to as a DH only trail. Berms have been put in and it has it's fair share of washboard ruts before the turns now. While it is fast down, you still have the occasional hiker and rider coming up, so be watchful

       It's one the classic Park City trails, everyone's ridden it. But for a 1500 foot descent it's pretty boring. Buff, straight, not much in the way of natural or man made features or flow. You're still going to end up on it.

       I know this trail is very popular, but I did it a couple of days ago and it was not very fun. It was a serious washboard. Even the berms. Kind of disappointed. Hopefully it gets some TLC.
