Stunning addition to Half-Nelson ends at the trailhead shed. All down, flowy, with lots of small hits to catch a bit of air on. A couple of short bridges. Mainly straight line with a few trees to deek around that make it super interesting. Great warm-up to HN.

      There's a large black bear around the top of the trail. He wasn't scared off by 10+ people. Make nose when you're in the area and watch your dogs
