A nice long route from 601 across the middle of the Nitro Trails and over to 701. Smooth return back to the parking area

Has pretty good flow from 701 to flowbee. Not technical.

This one seems like it's meant to be taken clockwise. There's a pretty big drop about 5-6' and the ride around is pretty steep and off camber. The drop if I remember correctly is near the top of the hill after the sign that points in 2 directions one says "back side of the mountain". There's a few gnarly roller coasters. Trail is blue with exception of the drop. No real exposure on this trail only perceived.

Fun DH (headed East). Its a sandy wash so uphill isn't the way I'd go.
