Built in 2015, this is a newly opened, flow single track with less jumps than Feel The Love but still a ton of fun. There is some scary sidehill on it so make sure that you are on the inside of the trail to keep from washing out. Other than that there may be the odd steep section but it is short and walkable. This trail was built to contrast Feel The Love's quick short descent and make more value for your big climb. It drops elevation slower and switch backs to keep the trail from being over in ten minutes. The lower section is now complete. At the moment there is no established single track connection between two. See Travellin' Man (Bottom) for more details.

 The description says it all, when you just don't want to go Feel The Love, this XC-ish descent is a great option. It feels like the climb you just did so don't come into it ready to coast down hill the entire time. You WILL be pedaling and you will be covering a lot of ground.
It has the same feel as the other trails around, same terrain and same little sniper berms.
Again, NOT a downhill trail but I really enjoyed it as an alternative to Feel The Love (though Santa's is still my go to).

Contrary to the current description, this did flow from 'Top' to 'Bottom' portions via singletrack.
