Trail Tower Loop
Been a little bit sandy last couple times out. Looks like it should rain some next week so hopefully will clear up soon. Definitely still rideable just watch out in some sections.

Trail Lung Buster
This is not a black diamond trail by any stretch. All feautures have ride arounds. It has fast drops and some climbs but it is smooth and fast.

Trail Lung Buster
One of the many trails in the New Territory side of highway 59/69. Good flow, has a couple berms and jumps. Some advanced features off to the side. Make sure to bring your legs and a good attitude. Best ridden when dry to protect trails.

Trail Bamboo Chute
One of the many trails in the New Territory side of highway 59/69. This is a short loop with medium stepdown jump that leads to a log ride with a 2-3 ft drop at the end. Best ridden when dry to protect trails.

Nice and flowy. One of the many trails in the New Territory side of highway 59/69. Has a couple berms and jumps. Some advanced features off to the side. Best ridden when dry to protect trails. Basically a little version of lungbuster.

Just the main trail that the rollercoaster loops branch off from. Best ridden when dry. Has some larger wooden lipped, dirt landing jumps.

Trail Tower Loop
Great trail for beginner to intermediate riders! A relatively short loop that only takes a couple minutes at trail speed. Best ridden after a period of no rain as the soil is clay and takes forever to dry up and reshape. Has a 2 wooden drops, some small jumps and berms, and overall good flow. This trail also connects to the trails on the other side of Highway 59/69.

Fun trail! Nice and flowy. Great for intermediate beginners/ intermediate . Lots of blind areas- call rider often as it’s a both-ways trail. The small part of Lung Buster that goes to Bamboo Shoot is very manageable.

This trail is like an easier version of Lung Buster. It's very fun, with lots of jumps and berms.
