Fun trail that isn't too technical. One of my favorites trails at Stephens that leads to some nice loops. Unfortunately, the last time I rode through there, one of my buddies hit a sharp rock and blew out his front tire and went OTB. He landed with both of his elbows locked out and they snapped backwards. I've never seen or heard anything like it. It sounded like someone breaking a 2X4. He was laughing and neighing like a horse simultaneously and started just walking around with 2 noodle arms in shock until we convinced him he wasn't ok and needed medical attention. Luckily we made it out and his injuries aren't permanent. Just be careful out there.

Several nice berms have been added in the last couple hundred yards of this trail and they make for a fun twisty descent. Great work!

This trailer is a blast! Really narrow single track with overhanging trees so you feel like you’re cruising through a tunnel. Mostly smooth with no obstacles in the frequent turns keep you from gathering a lot of speed but there are a few places with some great jobs.
