Not as much going on as there is on the lower section, but it is still a blast.

This is a fun descent but there’s not a lot to it. Personally I’d much rather just ride lower whoops twice than go to the top and ride this and the lower section

Fun downhill. A little techy, but not bad and that’s part of the fun.

Super fun trail. A bit of tech compared to a lot of trails in Bend. Rode it from Upper Flagline to Lower Flagline and that seemed to be the best direction.

Trail Lower Whoops
This trail is SO FUN. Great hits and burms to learn on and also push your self a bit. It’s fast and smooth with a easy climb. Lower loop can be done in under 30min the full loop takes about an hour and a half. Upper section is also really smooth with big long burms but no jumps. Have fun!

Trail Phil's Trail
So much fun!
The best trail for new riders. My 7yo rode Phil's twice from right below the black diamond section down to the bottom. Trail is super smooth and has a few rocky sections to keep it interesting.
The locals are super friendly and I very much enjoyed talking with them.

Really though, please don’t ride until after Aug 15. USFS uses trail cameras and Strava stalking to issue warnings and citations.

Please don’t ride this trail until it opens August 15th! This trail is closed for elk calving and we’ll lose it if people keep riding this trail while it’s closed.

In the little Canyon section, I feel like I remember there being a few small (2-3') drops, but they seemed to have been removed when I rode through yesterday. Disappointing if so.
