Description

This downhill-only trail is fast, steep, and expertly "new school." Using natural and manmade elements like jumps and drops, it's a bit of a technical-meets-freeride hybrid. This is undeniably the roughest 1.2 miles on the mountain with a descent of close to 600 feet, including a few natural rock sections.
