Great trail, but the first half is marked wrong. You want to start higher up the hill on the trail called Extended Death Climb and then roll into the middle section of this and down to the bottom

Super fun slabs with technical line choices. At the top it is more up and down but at the bottom it gets into the fun downhills. Super fun slabs and different line choices. Be careful in the wet because the slabs get super slick and the creek crossing at the bottom gets very, very deep. One of my favorites at the shed.

This is THE xc trail in the 'shed. If that's what you like, this will satisfy.

Reanimator Trail is probably my favorite downhill run in the shed including the newer entry further up fishing creek road. Reanimator has a few relatively small (for the shed) well built drops, some smaller slabs and requires some technical finesse in places. Everything is very doable for the advance rider.

The section between the bottom of Lawnmower and the bottom of Kubla Khan is called Catovid

Not easy to climb. Tons of baby head rocks all over the trail. Doable, but difficult.

This trail is great for experienced riders. Lots of rocks to ride. Most riders will likely walk a few features, some almost require trials skills. The majority are well made. Be careful if the trails are wet.

Love this trail. Have also heard it called “treegina” as someone else commented. If you download Gaia GPS there is a much more detailed segment. It is steep, but not nearly as steep as Creampie.

This trail is super fun but it most definitely is showing the wrong start and finish points. They need to be switched.
