This trail works well in either direction but is particularly well-liked by all-mountain and trail bike riders who like varied surfaces with small booters. For the downhill experience loop, ride from Johnny Draw on great singletrack up and over the ridge, then let it rip. There is one short steep 2-track climb about mid-way.

The last part of the ridge has sandstone steps, small hits with nice landings, and some tight switchbacks. Fast and fun. At the bottom, turn right and cruise out on a doubletrack down to the hwy. Turn right to take the highway about a mile back to the parking lot.
