A steeper, loose and rocky descent. A good trail to start your ride from Big Flat parking lot to warm up with some arm pump.

Access Info

To get to Wildcat, ride along the fireroad (Ram Hill). The singletrack entrance will be on your right. Cross the power lines and continue straight. Eventually, you'll come to a large roller. This is where the descent really begins.
