Description

The upper portion of this trail is very steep and very loose. Starting out, the descent is not too bad, but after the first 200-300 yards, it'll surprise you first with a couple of switchbacks and then the trail continues to its steep descent.

The lower portion of the trail is much more mild, and there is some pleasant running to be had here. In the lower portion, you'll have some nice, tight singletrack to enjoy, with a couple creek crossings thrown in to keep things exciting.
