“Radio Flyer's sibling - a flow trail straight down Vail Mountain”

Description
This is Radio Flyer's sibling. Not as good (it doesn't flow as well, and it's a lot rockier), but it's still a lot of fun.

Starting right under the gondola, the trail switchbacks on smooth trail with nice berms that might be a little tight for beginners. You'll cross several roads and ski runs and then into the woods where the fun notches up. Glide through the aspens on great downhill-style banked turns. End up on a dirt road and finish off with Hank's Hideaway or Liondown to the base.

Can be crowded - be polite and keep your good trail karma.
