Constructed dirt jump trail. Upper section is very rocky until you get to the log drop (4-6ft), middle section is packed dirt and shale with several dirt drops (1-2ft), rollers, and berms. Lower section is packed dirt with large tables, rollers, and berms. This is an expert-level trail and requires advanced riding skills.

Access Info

starts at the firetower on skyline drive

Disclaimer

there are optional easier lines around the 4-6 foot log drop and all jumps are tables.
