       Some chunky, loose spots, serious roots. Other than that...Airstrip is a “first class” downhill experience.

       Really fun DH. Has some really spots. Reasonover to Airstrip to Mine Mtn is a great loop.

       Thanks to those who did some recent erosion control on this trail. Rides great, even uphill. View at the end of the airstrip is breathtaking.

       All downhill and fast and easy even for an old guy like me. Definitely a blue that most could handle.
