Very fun technical trail with drops, jumps, berms, steep sections, and rock gardens. Trail has become fairly steep due to major erosion from heavy rain.

       Caution on the new section on the lower part of the trail. Just into the new bottom section the left turn there is a piece of rebar stick up about 5 inches and it is dangerous. I’m sure the ranger will bring tools to repair this but be safe for the next couple day.
