This is clearly and historically a ONE way DIRECTIONAL trail. It has jumps and features that are outright dangerous when people are climbing as well as several blind berm corners. DO NOT CLIMB THIS TRAIL. recently we are witnessing new riders trying to climb it and almost causing accidents. Don't be "that guy".

One of the more fun trails at Kelso. Feels like 90% is downhill.

Tight this trail is tight but fun to maneuver around. Nothing too hard, a couple of big rock rolls.

A fast run down the middle section of Kelso. Nice and flowy.
