Fern Trail is pretty rough going down and would turn into a black diamond and requires lots of skill. Can be a rude awaking when coming down 2N10 which is very mellow. The trail starts with a very steep and rock garden obstacle followed by some downed trees at another steep grade. its a blast if you have experience. if you are not ready for that just continue down skyline road (2N10) and you come right onto clubview and follow the road back la placida and than to Switzerland to get back to lift.
