A much deserved downhill after climbing Innie. Fast flowing w/ one climb, followed by more fun!

Craig Fowler

Description

Outie is one of the top downhills in the Prince Creek trail system. Dropping off the opposite side of the saddle, Outie descends fast through sage brush before getting low enough for scrub oak to take over.

The top section throughout the sage is fast and open, with only a few tight turns. The middle section in the scrub oak is looser and the turns are tighter. The end of the middle section ends with a short but very steep climb that leads to the intersection of Buckhorn. The bottom of this climb is where the Outie Cut Off comes in from the left.

After the intersection of Buckhorn you descend through more sage with fast, flowing turns and a few tight ones that sneak up on you. The sage ends and you'll be in the scrub oak and some pines. Winding through the wooded area, the trail is still fast and super fun. Just before reaching the other end of the Outie Cut Off you'll descend the first of a couple steep descents on the lower section. This area is also the rockiest of the whole trail.

There are a few more quick up and down gullies that will surprise you if you forget to shift down. After the last gully you continue to climb a short way turning right on an old doubletrack which leads down to the meadow with the Chicken Coop and the end of North Porcupine.
