This is the fastest, rowdiest trail in the entire trail system! While some of the descents off the top are tight and exposed with hairpin switchbacks, The Gauntlet (on average) is much more open with much better flow, allowing you to conserve your speed and blast down the mountain! There are tons of corners to carve up towards the top, but as the trail descends it gets rockier and rootier, transitioning into a high speed suspension testing zone lower down.
Drop the saddle and be prepared to rock on this trail!
Note: this does drop you down on the east side of the ridge, on the otherside of the mountain from the Bennett Springs Trailhead.
