This trail is a fun and flowy down, and a nice hard climb up. It's one of the first trails to be snow-free in the spring. No TTFs, just fun singletrack.

Access Info

Access to this trail is either from the cutblock to the south (see map) or access trail from Foothills. Papa Woods crosses this trail about 1/3 of the way down Valve Job.
