Not nearly as fun as the lower section, after you cross over the road, but it is still fun

Super fun and flowy trail, nice to try something other than rush every once in a while, if rush is an 8, then this is an8.5, really under rated

This is not at all beginner. I’d called it advanced Intermediate. . Way too challenging for me.
I wrecked and had to limp down

This one is just not my tempo. For me the flow is just not right at all and some of the hits don't line up well. Compared to the big three this one, for me, is a very distant small four.

This trail has great flow at the right speed. I don’t know how someone could hate Achtung Baby. If you like Rush and especially Limelight, you’ll love Achtung Baby.

One of the worst trails imaginable. It’s as if it was made by someone who has never ridden a bike or by a scout troop with no supervision.

Great little trail with lots of small rollers. Would be excellent for beginners especially because the climb up is easy. I’ll be taking my boys up here soon.

Can easily climb back to top or continue down to lower Achtung.

Could be one of my new favorites! Such great flow, plenty of great rollers and jumps. Plenty of trees and evening shade! Not the worst climb back up the hog hollow doubletrack!
