Super fun, short n' sweet trail — lots of little jumps and berms, and the "corkscrew" near the end is memorable. (The small jumps at the bottom of the trail appear to be sorted out now.) Start on Roxy Roller to get your full flow going!

Trail Eric's Trail
Heads up for a downed tree on Eric’s Trail, just above the intersection with Roxy Roller. The tree is high enough to hit an adult in the neck/head if they are standing on their pedals!

Great trail, perfect conditions now, flowy with rollers, berms and a fun corkscrew at the end. Enter from Rocky Roller and you won’t be disappointed.!

Broken vortex space unicorn hip is a fun trail, but I would recommend changing the name of it again.

The last three jumps on the trail are very poorly designed. Please take cation as I've seen 2 people taken to the hospital on one day so far.
