Short rock garden with some spikey rocks. Not necessarily too challenging, but certainly requires some momentum management. Trials tricks make short work of this.

      Tree down near 8 pin, probably 12-14 inches. Needs an ambitious hand saw or a sharp chainsaw

      Wudchuk is a fun loop with several good features. Signage is aging (June 21) but you can't get too lost. Swope Park is worth a stop if you're traveling through on I-70.
