The descent is pretty underwhelming. Not worth the seemingly protracted climb.

Trail Skydive
Totally agree about the preference over farmjunk - both are great but skydive is amazing and well worth repeated climbs

Fun decent, not very technical so would be perfect for younger or learning riders to practice their flow skills. For the experienced riders might be boring unless you want to open it up, trail is wide to really hammer down

Trail Black Bear
2 mile pump track - use your entire body and the bikes speed to really enjoy the trail. Lots of side jumps, doubles and fast berms make it a trail to run multiple times to truly appreciate

Trail Black Bear
East Haven has two of the best trails at the Kingdom Trails: Black Bear and Stormin' Norman. The climb up the haul road is a grind, but the descents are soooo worth it. Tons of flow and perfectly built berms. twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/best-trails-kingdom-trails

Nice fast flowy trail with a few features built in. Personally, I prefer it over Farmjunk, but both trails are awesome!

Insane flow. You're constantly floating the bike up or down, left or right.

Great connector making many long loops possible without riding on the road.

One of the must rides when in the kingdom. The climb up is definitely worth it.
