Go for it! No resting necessary. Wear padded gloves and go full full squish on suspension and you'll be fine! The top is the hardest. Enjoy the challenge

This trail is technically a black, but is very difficult if you try to do it top/bottom in 1 shot due to length. It's much easier if you do it in sections then rest. Total jackhammer ride.

The brake bumps are ridiculous. 1 lap, had to pick the line where the braking bumps are 3" high instead of 6" high. Where is the trail crew?

This gets so riddled with brake bumps and pot holes by mid August that it's not fun on many bikes that aren't enduro or DH bikes.

Nice, smooth trail with big smooth berms. Pretty sweet trail to just flow down and a nice wall ride at the bottom.

Trail is extremely dry. There's really no trail work that can be done on this one, just needs some H2O.
