The trail that you probably came to this place for. Thunder Chicken! All flow, all jumps, all drops, big jumps (at bottom), wallrides. This is awesome for arkansas. A piece of the big mountains that found its way to arkansas. Tips of advice once you get warmed up and familiar with this trail is to hit everything as fast as you can! Drops, wall rides, and jumps. Built by Progressive Trail Design. Got its name from what was originally going to be the arkansas baseball team now. The Naturals were going to be called the thunder chickens.
