       Great way to end a ride at Hawes. Take this towards Power rd from the 4 way. Moderate climb, but very playful, flowy, fun down hill.

       Start from 4 way splitter and head toward Power rd. Technical and flowy with a short climb toward the end. You kind of get the best of everything here. Beware of hikers going against the grain.
