Description

It's smooth, easy, and scenic. No point in doing this unless you're not comfortable on the (much better) intermediate options.

When the marked trail ends, you can easily follow more dirt road all the way the to base area, but the Liondown trail turns into the woods and become a pretty good blue singletrack.

This is a good trail for practicing carrying speed down long descents for flatlanders (like me). Intermediate riders would yawn.
