       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

       Getting pretty loose through the rock sections, still is a real nice time!

       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!
