Trail Trail 60
It's a surfing descent. So fun. The sand is thick and deep and really only meant to be descended. It will put a smile on your face.

3 sandy spots on the climb will be hike-a-bike for most people. Very dry.

Super fun. Fast n flowy with nice turns. Take caution on blind turns when going downhill to riders coming up. You can carry serious speed on the straight, wooded section. Another fav of mine.
