Named after the ride at Lagoon but this is not tame. The entrance is hard to find in the saddle between The Twins and then you get a pretty and fun decent through the upper meadows. The last pitch of the ride back to BST is a super-steep slide with jagged drops over spines with sharp oak branches squeezing on the sides. Make the rock sections and you can slide the rest and live but this section is hard to even walk down and earns the scary name. It is all too steep to ride in reverse so access via Twins only and DH to BST.

 I agree this is a fun trail but it is no no no no no where near a pro-line. The majority of the alternate lines in bob sled are harder. Also the arrows are going the wrong direction. You start close to the top of the north peak of twin peaks and look east and a bit north to see the single track. This is a black, maybe double for some of the loose rocky bits.

 I was wondering about that direction. I didn't see a way up, so I figured it was also used for the climb to Upper Twin Peaks. I fixed it

 I ride this often, I've never seen a hiker on it. Sooooo....why aren't we supposed to ride down it?
