I've always heard this trail referred to as Suspended in Paradise but the lower half was decommissioned about five years ago and the name may have changed then. The forest service only allows a certain amount of miles of road to exist in their system so when they add roads in certain places other roads must be removed, or so I've heard. The top part of this, which is still rideable, has some jumps and flow but I'm not sure if the lower part has been reworked. You can jump on Water 2 Stairway halfway down and turn left toward Stairway to Heaven.
