The trail begins with some sweeping loamy turns into some steep switchbacks. The trail then goes into some techy rock gardens with a steep chute mixed in the middle. You then enter an open section that you can ride with a ton of speed. Very fun trail to test your skills.

Access Info

Ride up Traverse trail from the West entrance on Ridge Road.

       Pretty fast for the most part but with some spots to catch you off guard. One of my favorites in the forest
