This trail is a really fun steep downhill trail. Most of the trail goes more at a single black diamond. The trail ends with a large step-down gap that makes it earn the double black rating.

Small drops, rock rollers, steep & narrow rock sections littler the rest of the trail. Must ride.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

Destroyed by the Museum Fire. RIP
