Im sure everyone heard us whooping it up down the trail. Just don't use your brakes if you need to spice it up.

Blown out and poorly maintained super long doubles/gaps. Was probably lots of fun in its hayday!

Fun trail and not crazy at all, but don’t expect a green if you are beginner rider as previous comment suggests…

No wood jumps remain. More like a blue trail. But only if done fast. If done slow it is a green/blue.

Trail Access Road
There is a massive tree down about 400m on this road. Do NOT drive down here...it is not a shortcut to the lodge even though there is a sign saying Lodge and the road looks open. I would suggest that if the mountain doesn’t want traffic here that they put a log or fence or really anything telling people not to drive down that road.

Excellent point. Trailforks is catching up to the signs posted on the trails. I'll start suggesting updates/corrections; otherwise, it's just confusing.
