Trail Arrowhead
Very fun. NOT fun as a finisher trail when you are exhausted.

Great Trail and glad to be so close to it now! Its a good ride in both directions, however starting from the more Northern point will have you climbing most of the way but set you up for the jumpline at the very end. Reverse that and you climb the jump line and decend most of the techy stuff and you can decend Arrowhead that way. Overall a fun trail to ride in both directions as a single trail loop, two varied experiences on one trail.

Nice beginner trail with 2 skinnies and a roller to practice on. Also makes a good "cool down" trail after descending Tuck A Way

I remember a very fun jump section on the last descent of this trail. Are there any more or any plans for expansion?

Incredible trail, thanks to the trail builders for the amazing dirt and stone work. Ride in the direction shown to enjoy the jumps at the end. Keep an eye out for an optional rock drop in the beginning
