       Awesome Trail with a fair bit of Flow for a Westside Double Black! The Trail is also in great condition right now.

       Pure insanity! Confident riders only! I’m happy to say I came out with a smile on my face, this trail has some fantastic (note EXPERT) rock sections. A classic for sure with some serious obstacles to clear. Loved every second of it Smile

       Be careful with the first punchy climb if you don't make it it is easy to roll backwards and off the small cliff like I did

       Loved this trail! It’s a step up from legalize it so be ready as some of the downhill is going to challenge you. Ride it 3-4 times and you’ll be smiling the entire time!
