“One of the area's longest, fastest, and most fun downhill trails.”— D. H.
The trail flattens out and becomes more twisty after this point and will take you back to the Connector Trail at the base of the overlook stairway. The upper section of trail was benched into a very steep hillside so you may even get the feeling of exposure in some areas.
