Trail Floyd Fox
Prime condition. Excellent dirt with one mud puddle near the bottom. Burns are excellent today. Little crowded due to other down hill trails being ckosed.

Trail Floyd Fox
Super fun flow rolling descent back to the parking lot. No real rocks or anything technical to contend with, just great berms and a couple fun alternate lines.

Trail Toll Road
This trail is definitely best used as a fire road climb. You’re much better off descending Victor Ashe if you’re coming from the West.
