Challenging trail to ride on a MTB bike, need to be on your game and definitely need to ride it top to bottom. Great for running in both directions. Nice scenery throughout.

Don’t be fooled by the description.
This is mostly tech, with some crazy tight corners
Still it’s a pretty fun trail

The top section is still rideable, but the trail ends in the clearcut. It's easy to walk down the remaining 20-30 feet to the 2nd half of Abby.
