A very fast paced jump line with solid 3 ft+ jumps to flat. This is one of the flowiest downhill tracks in the watershed;
it's pretty smooth compared to surrounding trails. Towards the end, there is an awesome wallride right before the biggest gap jump on the trail. Not too steep, but typically it's covered in leaves, making it hard to stop.

Access Info

If you are coming off of Lawnmower, take a left turn on the Catoctin Blue Trail and climb up for a bit. A-line is the trail to the right just before the Catoctin Blue Trail intersects with a blown out fire road.
