Nice and long alpine trail with many switchbacks. The upper section is mostly rough and steep terrain and it is the most difficult part of the trail (if you can corner switchbacks!). The parts between the switchbacks in the lower section are easy and very flowy.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
