Probably the best descent in the main Rattlesnake. After leaving the overlook, you wind up and down through the woods for a little, before the trail gets steep, rooty and and fun. To avoid the smooth part at the end take a sharp left at the sign for Wallman, and head up for another fun descent!

Three large downed trees between the junction for Wallman and the little wooden bridge crossing Spring Creek. Beyond that, overlook is riding...

 The first half of this trail, above the junction with Stuart Pk Trail, is widely known as Overlook or Snowbowl Overlook.

 Could use some more turns. Seems like a good trail if you're in a hurry to get back to the parking lot.
