Description

Opened in February of 2015, this two-part trail is made up of a bi-directional portion that runs from the intersection of Boulder Ridge and West Ridge trails down to the top of the Lightning trail, and a unidirectional downhill portion that begins inside Boulder Ridge and then combines with the bi-directional trail. It is a fun and fast downhill.
