Amazing views and great singletrack descent through a large, mature aspen forest.

It's a great trail, but there's a short junky section (a badly eroded, straight downhill mess of loose rock) right at the bottom before you hit the highway culvert.

The loop with Line Shack makes a great half-day ride.
