As this trails name implies, one wrong move on this trail and you can slide, glide, tip or flip. If you survive, you'll have had a hell of a time, if not you'll wish you would have taken a "Quick Way Out". This trail is a continuation of Powerlines and is as wide as a road but with many small to medium boulders and rock faces that would love to meet your face. Consider this your warning.

       Pretty fun, straight, bumpy downhill trail. Leads to the road.

       Really enjoyed this trail. Lots of loose stones. Not for the faint of heart. If you can keep your balance you will make it to the end.
