A fast, flowing downhill trail with no technical features other than some swooping berms interspersed with some bumps. The upper portion may be beyond the liking of absolute beginners. There is a tie-in to the lower portion which may be more appropriate for these riders.

Access Info

There is a tie-in connection from Lower Mossy Maple to the lower portion of this trail for sessioning some easier flow rides (making a 3/4 mile circuit). There is also a connection across Lower Mossy Maple trail from the end of Yew Haw and shortly before the extension to Lower Mossy Maple branches off to the left.

Lower is flowy jumps and some large bumps and a great fast ride with a couple short flats to catch your breath. Will get even better at it rides in.

 Great trail with alot of berms and bumps. Once it gets ridden in more it will be an awesome grip and grin. Will be a little loose in some corners for a while as the trail is new. Some of the berms are a bit short on the exit so pay attention to your lines. So glad this is finally open and so close. THANKS DOD and Willamalane.

 Getting a little more packed in and the berms starting to get a bit of a groove. Some loose sluff/stuff in some of the turns. Great fun!

 I’m a beginner Mountain Biker, not an expert. I’ve been out at whypass a few times which is more enjoyable for me. But I think overtime once the trail gets packed in, it will be an excellent trail. Getting to Acer Spades is an excellent workout! Just be careful if your a beginner.
