This trail is usually open from from June until the first big storm in late October. It can access from the Thunder mountain trail head and can be looped by riding up the castle rock trail on the North side of 88. This a difficult dh that starts off with flowing single track on loose small rocks and then gets chunky and technical for the last 2/3. One of the longer and more technical downhills in the region.
