A challenging find but fun ride down from the summit once you're on the trail which starts as a very deep rut going south from the summit. Rock face and alpine descent for a while. Then it changes to single track with berms in the forest. Finally it ends descending on a green ski run through meadows.

Disclaimer

Trail is difficult to locate at start and portions have been envoloped by new ski run construction.
