Very flowy and fun section. Lots of options for jumps. Berms are also fun. A great trail to end the day! (I’m 11)

This one really takes its title… it’s freakin’ nature! Good for lots of skill levels (I’m 11). You can just go fast on the downhill and berms, which are super fun. 10/10! Super fun trail!

The beginning is slow, big rocks, punchy uphill rocky climbs more of a black trail than a blue. After you get past the entrance to your mom trail it gets more flowy with just roots and loam. Best trail to access the high side of smily.

Yeah this is absolutely 100% called Rough Rock Ridge, even on the NTN printed maps. Even the signage on the trails calls it as such.

This is NOT the name of this trail. I wish people would stop trying to be cute and leave their mark on their vacation spot. Trailforks isn't Strava! Use proper trail names!

Trail Flow
Old school flow style trail. That means lots of rocks, roots, and high speeds. Very fun trail if you like chundery high speeds, and some quick succession up and down rock faces. If you're looking for smooth, bermmy, wide, pumpy flow, this is not your trail. If you're looking for hand built natural old school, this is your trail.

Upper section is rowdy, definitely qualifys as a black diamond, lower section is faster and flowy, more like a blue

Moments of fun both climbing and descending, but some tough parts that would likely be black rated moments. Regardless of that, fair warning: the Overlook doesn't really look over anything due to trees.

If you are on a Enduro or DH bike I agree with the other comment that this is a blue trail.

If you are on a more of an XC bike the top half of the trail is a black diamond and the bottom half is borderline a blue square\black diamond.

Trail Flow
despite the name, most of this trail is NOT a flow trail. Long straights, slick bridges, ratty bits. The only fun bit of this trail is the last, where it crosses over Porcu Pine , down to the road. Start there.

Despite the dire warnings at the top of the trail, this is a nice blue flow trail. No drops, no gaps, no steep rock roll downs. Every thing can be rolled nice and slow.
