Can anyone tell me the directions of the two new trails end/start below brackentrail? One goes towards top of skyridge, one goes up jacks to the end of icy hole of death. I have climbed them both but I have also had people come down it. Thanks

Two way trail... although it makes more sense as a climb to Jack's in my opinion.

Trail Wonderland
A fun ride to go on almost flat downhill. Don't expect to much speed. The forest trail has lots of rocks and small river bridges. Nice fun trail going either direction. I like it uphill to get to some other trails and on the way back for some easy flow in the beautiful woods.

A much more fun ride if you start this from the Alice Lake end.

I was super stoked to put a second jump in, and with a rock solid first landing due to it being frozen, what better time to ride then...
