Description

This trail is primarily used by mountain bikers as a fast downhill run. Be alert and aware of your surroundings and please respect other users on the trail.

Starting at the upper parking lot next to the campground, you'll start out winding through trees. It's a bit rocky with a couple of short steep sections. There are a few small steps down and rolling topography (meant for the bikers).

Near the end the trail gets smoother.

This trail is very popular with bikers, and is a bit more rutted then others.

Several trails intersect this one, but they're all well marked. At the bottom you'll hit Western Zip; take a left and you'll be at the lower parking lot before you know it.
