A short trail with lots of TTF's starting out technical and finishing flowy as the trail continues into Squidline. The trail is on the verge of being double black with a lot of advanced moves at the top.

Access Info

Climb up to the Squid Line entrance, once you're there continue up the same road and duck under the yellow gate. The road up has just been graded. Eventually youll hit another gate with a bunch of towers. The trail starts after the second tower. The Taggart Peak Hike is to the left behind the tower, don't take this. Take the trail to the right.

At the end of the trail, turn right to continue onto Squid Line.

reporter All clear. Much of the overgrowth has died, so the trail is now running quite well.

Overgrown. Great trail and still rideable but worried it could get ruined by plant growth. A little tlc would help

Top half is overgrown. A walk down the trail with a weedwacker would do some good. All clear otherwise.

reporter Generally running well. Brush is overgrown in some areas. Pretty slick after last night's rain, but no standing water anywhere.

 Super fun trail. Tech at the top then get flowy and jumpy. Hero dirt up there.

 Fairly overgrown in sections right now. The top bit pulls double black for sure imo, but i'm a bit of a wuss. Good to go though.

 I rode Salty Nozzle for the first time a couple days ago. Its pretty fun. The top part has a couple short super steep sections and then gets into a flow section with unusual jumps. You skip the first part of squid line.
