The top part of the trail is a flow trail with optional jumps and fun flowy berms. The bottom two-thirds of the trail is a rooty tech trail, with buff berms, drops and a huge unforgiving rock face. Tons of steep downhill sections that many find difficult. The trail is still fun but requires caution.

 Fast natural terrain trail with small drops and rollers. Make sure you get your front wheel up when going off the small log drop near the top. Would be easy to do an endo on that one. One of my favorite trails in Galbraith.

 Upper half is a absolute dust bowl. Would recommend riding oriental express instead.
