Trail Double Down
Really Double Down is the 'double black' trail between the two, if anything. Double Down is a legit solid black anywhere in the world, with some expert features. Double Black trail was easier- both are fun with some tech, roots, drops, good dirt.

Trail Double Down
Fun! Fun! Good flow with splashes of roots to delight those that love the tech! Very well built trail! Glad we got the shuttle with Intrinsic Flow! Pretty sweet to get extra laps in and be driven by one of the contributing trail builders!

The cool rock ledges you hike/push under almost make it worth it.

Trail Double Down
Just above my comfort level -- VERY FUN. I was alone, so I was careful and looked at everything before either hitting or skipping. Some features I felt I could go back and make, others I would just love to see others do.

Stellar views, well made trail. Be ready to carry your bike up like 100+ stairs. Wasn't that bad, would do again.
