The climb is pretty short, sharp, and intense, but the drop is fun. Watch out for slippery roots on the way up!

This trail is currently closed while forestry operations are in progress, along with Mandatory Power Play, Buzz Cut and Stumpy's Mayhem. The forestry work will most likely be going on all March 2021.
