3 Main Trails recommendations
-Gypsy- Mix of loose blown out berms, wood features, manmade rock gardens
-Livewire- Black diamond flow trail
-Coaster- Blue trail with some built up berms, loose, mainly natural terrain
**Booster to Playground is a short blue flow trail that takes you to a fire road, which is the only way back down without riding a race trail
Trail down to Resort Village: EasyRider is the only way back down that will not find a race stage.
