Flat turns and confusing alternate lines. This ain't no flow trail. There are some fleeting moments of flow that are snatched away by some silly rock feature. I don't care about riding between two big rocks! No one cares! The terrain is so cool. It's a pitty this trail doesn't take full advantage.

So much fun. One of the best in the area. Multiple line choices, great flow with occasional technical spots.
