Starts off with a long side hill trail littered with rocks and slight turns to keep you honest. Crosses a road and starts into the turns and jumps. Some turns are a little off camber but if you manage to hold your line you are rewarded with some flowy speed. A couple of roll overs that can be hit as jumps, but there are even easier outs if that isn't your thing.

Access Info

From the Summit, head south down the road a ways until you pass the lower tower (visible from the Summit). Keep an eye out as you pass the tower for a trail on your right. It is about 30' past the end of the structures.

Its coming ... couple more days and it'll be ready. Still in dire need of berms, but that is kind of the flavour of the trail.
