By far the most flown trail in the area. So much fun especially downhill but fun uphill too.

Fun trail! Pretty hard to hit some of the rocky sections going up and some tight berms on the way down but definitely flowy and fun sections!

Tree across track. 28 Aug 2020. Not huge but too big for me to move...can push around on top side.

Some riders have been removing rocks from the trail to reduce the challenge in sections. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS! Challenging trail features are there to help improve your skills, and removing them impacts the experience for all other riders.

If you can't go as fast through a section as you'd like, practice riding it until you can, don't ruin it for others!

Absolutely brutal climb. Had my Wahoo maxing out at a 40+% gradient.

Some muddy sections at lower end - given the sharp turns in this track these muddy sections require a higher level of concentration than usual.
