Sweet trail that transitions from forest to desert. Few nice natural rock drops although landing is a bit flat on a few of them. Get some practice in and jump off your fridge at home.

One of the best trails in the Okanagan. Link it to connector for fun, big drops for variety or rocky screech for more tech.
