Loose moon dust and brake bumps. Trail needs some work but dialed in it would be a blast.

Sick Flow on this trail, you can really let it rip. Its almost an intermediate trail.

Love this trail. The first G out is tricky. You have to downshift to the right gear ahead of time to be able to climb up to the top of it. Make sure to lean back immediately at the bottom of the G out and stay to the left there as well. So fun

Best trail out at Dog Park. Yes it’s loose, chunky in spots and there’s brake bumps but this trail will test your skills and take you to the next level once you conquer it. So much fun

Heard good things so I gave it a go. Great views but the drops were really sketchy. The edges were fun but there are other really fun trails in SC that I prefer over this one. Trail was really dry and dirt was loose.

Fun trail. There is one section with a steep decline leading to a abrupt and sharply angled incline. Lots of people have gone over there bars trying to have enough speed to get up the incline but not anticipating the abrupt change from decline to incline...

I do not recommend pedaling up this trail. We have had two near misses recently. This is a fast trail with jumps, turns, and bushes that make it hard to see.
