***The first half (Coal Chutes) is completely ruined from landslides. Ride from Halfway to the Edge.

Fun, challenging trail with incredible views. Ride with caution as the trail runs extremely close to the cliff edge at times.

 There is also another trail beside the Edge ,,Ladynights (bank corners,jumps),,up on cripple creek(jump,double corner) and the ledge return trail..would also like to add to the end of the edge by keep going straight at bottom over rocks then down beside river to paved path near bridge..
