The trick for maximum enjoyment on this trail is energy management. It's a pretty shallow grade for the most part, so if you aren't good at pumping the terrain or you're braking into the corners, it can get a bit pedally. That said, it's a ton of fun, and a great way to work on cornering and pumping technique to get faster and faster.

Shumway and Muzzy see to get all the attention here, but don't overlook this trail. Tons of fun going downhill.

@ noshofosho, do you even like/know the first thing about mountain biking? Don't listen to this guy, this is one of the best downhill trails I've ever done.

"Lucille's Climb" might be a better name for this, as it is the clear best route to climb up this area.

Fantastic addition to the Marshall area! Can be ridden either direction, but much more fun in the direction shown - S->N.

Incredible trail. Fast turns, jumps, narrow passages, best trail in the network for a technical downhill.

Took up MTB in 2020 as a response to COVID, and on my 66th day out this year I hit this network. All I can say is .... this is the single most fun trail I've encountered thus far, out of the hundreds of trails I've been on. Great job, NEMBA - I'd come back to lap this a few times, on its own.

In my honest opinion this trail is severely overrated. Looks like a lot of love was put in to make this trail fun on the way up and way down but instead they got neither. Cool rock rolls and features but flow almost non existent and was much better on other trails in the network.

Awesome flow trail. Machines top with lots of Easter egg rock rolls and jumps. Breaks were a little slippery since it was so dry. The bottom section was a bit like Sidewinder in KT. Overall excellent trail

Best trail in the network fun berms and simple jump features. Tread gravel gets a bit slippery when running dry. Super fun to descend fast so please take one of the other trails up.

One of the best engineered flow trails anywhere. Easy climb up. Huge payoff. Nice rock rollovers and jobs. Great job White Mountain NEMBA!

Hopping on the top comment - this trail should really only be ridden in the downhill direction. People FLY down this trail, and there are a few blind corners where accidents can happen easily. I *HIGHLY* recommend only riding down.
