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.

Sidewinder is a hoot, and a good taste of backcountry-style technical singletrack for riders who aren't quite ready for Sticks 'n Stones.

One of my favorite GTR trails - you'd never believe you're riding in a bike park. The upper 2/3 is rocky, techy, nasty and the lower 1/3 is pure backcountry-style flow with lots of little drops.
