The jumps themselves are all in great condition, but the gap/ right hip has a tree in the gap that needs to be trimmed

Who built this? KUDOS! My son and I rode it yesterday and I was in awe of the design and effort that went in to the entire build. There’s been some erosion in parts from the monsoons but overall the trail is a wonder. Would love to see a feature on Trailforks that showed the builders.

I’m sure locals are aware, but the bottom half after it crosses the sunrise green trail is gone & being developed. Looks like a road & neighborhood is being put in. Top half is still rideable & most jumps are still in good condition. A little brush clean-up & would be great.

Jumpline is looking great. Nearly all jumps are rideable. Some of the lips are washing out, which weirdly enough is making them steeper.

Serious kudos to the designers and builders of this trail. Despite how raw and technical it is, it is obvious the huge amount of effort that went into making it rideable. I didn’t hit any of the sketchy gaps, but the climb and the DH were two thumbs up!
