“An awesome loop that is home to the aptly named, ridiculous DH section, "Wheel Breaker."”— Andrew Cutshall
The second half starts with a fast downhill with a few very large water bars. Once you've rested, there are a few steep, punchy climbs on the way up to Wheel Breaker.
Wheel Breaker is a scarily fast DH in the shade of a tunnel of rhododendron bushes, full of water bars to jump and roots to fly over. Be careful at the end because there is a big water bar about 15 feet to stop from warp speed.
On the left of the trail is Bent Creek. This is a nice place to stop and rest. Once you're done, head to the right, cross the smaller creek and go uphill.
