Though this trail is renowned for its flow, the upper portion has chunky rock gardens and some root sections to help warm you up for the smooth ribbon of velvet below. Featured in Freehub Magazine's Northwest Oregon Photo Book: Issue 12.1

The trail braiding and erosion before the Ken A bridge is getting real out of hand. Needs a proper rebuild. Lower DS is riding "okay", but is fairly beat in places. The old stump jump is so eroded I had to give it a good yank to make sure I cleared it today!
