This one starts off with some rocky drops and roots in an aspen forest valley. It smoothes out a bit, but there will still be sections with short drops that intermediates may want to walk. Experts will be able to ride just about everything.

After a while the trail stops descending quite so fast and crosses a beautiful creek using a skinny bridge. Then more of the same through a rocky valley with partially cleared pine forests and aspens. The bottom is much less steep, smooth and super-fast fun until it ends at the Eagle Vail Trail.
