Fun trail! They seemed to have added some berms and rollers for some flow.

This trail should be one direction only, down. It is a crime to do this uphill. Go grind so many other uphills but leave alone one of the very few lon flowy descents in Philly

This trail has a bee/hornet infestation, it would be best to avoid it entirely.

Most Popular as a descent will lots of pump rollers that you can launch off of if you want to do some jumps. Berms and some breaking bumps as well, watch the off camber turns.
