A somewhat technical and physically demanding trail that combines a mix of features, flow, and hills.

       Flowy with some short, punchy climbs throughout. Proceed with caution on any wooden features!

       Fun trail! I wouldn’t consider this a black. There is some features but everything is pretty tame. It would be a good trail to help build confidence with small jumps and small drops.

       Fun trail, definitely a blue. There’s no hard features that require a rider to commit to.
