Trail Momentum
This isn't a two way trail in it's entirety and should be noted as such in at least the description. There are a couple sections above Black Tie that i'd be surprised if many, let alone any, could clean. Even below Black Tie there are a handfull of root ledges etc that will have a a lot of people unfamiliar with the trail off the bike IMO/E. I'd put this on the easier end of the black scale going down from the top and going up to black tie.

Trail Big Red
I loved this unique trail! It seems to follow a century-old logging road that was blasted through the rock. Rocky but very little rubble is what makes it so special. So you end up with a long drawn-out gradual rock staircase down through the forest, matted with pine needles. Just keep moving and you never have to put your feet down as you fly down the mountain picking your way over and around obstacles. Just a blast. As an added bonus, the forest seems to strangely enclose the trail, creating a tunnel effect.
Way better than Red Rider or Momentum.

Trail Big Red
Ton of fun. Fast and natural with a bit of everything along the way - rocky, loamy, steep, tight.
