Good techy trail, lots of rock rollers and roots. The last third of this trail is a great flowy downhill trail.

      Recently leaf blown. Some very wet spots in the first third of the trail, but should dry out this week.

      This is one of the gnarliest trails I have ridden in MA. Starts off with plenty of cool rock roll features and a few drops, then after a switchback climb you are rewarded with a fast flowing descent with some tight turns, exposure, wall rides. Trail is sick.
