The new state course removed any of the wooden features that were present on the original 16 mile trail and replaced the skinny singletrack with a machine cut ~4' wide track down the mountain. It is considered the "fast and flowy" section--quite a bit smoother overall than Butcher Ranch with a great downhill pitch. You now have to ride down an asphalt trail and cut off onto a gravel trail before getting back to the old single track. A trail & parking area reconstruction project completed in July '17. Butcher Ranch is the main trail for the classic Downieville Downhill.
