I love this trail, but the landing of the first big tabletop could definitely use some more dirt and less rocks. The landing is really bumpy and probably more than one person has got a flat.

Does anyone know who the trail builder / who maintains it? I would be interested in helping out with maintenance because it could use some love in spots. Thanks!

Rode this trail for the first time today and I was surprised how fun it was. There was some fresh dirt and it was super smooth, fast and flowy. The trail head still says double black but its more of a blue/black. There are a couple techy parts but they are pretty tame, there is a really fun wooden roll down that is kinda steep that is maybe black but its optional (just take a right after the smaller wood roll down and you can take a way around). Not easy like bobsled but not a advanced trail either.

If you can ride expresso you can 100% ride this and I personally think its an awesome way to end a run down expresso and lower expresso (or any other trail for that matter) and is 100% worth the small uphill to get to it from the bottom of lower expresso.

Fantastic trail. I would rate it as blue though, there's nothing black about it

I think it's the wooden roll at the end and the optional elevated skinny that tips it into black territory when looking at standards. But would agree it's a blue for the rest.
