Situated at the park's highest and lowest elevations, this flowing trail starts with a short but furious uphill section heading west and a fast, short saddle rising into another short climb. A sustained downhill section follows. The singletrack then enters a series of rises, descents, and switchbacks among many small ridges, and eventually passes the Landing Zone before heading back north. The return has a challenging uphill section and ends with a wooden berm and wooden bridge features and some last downhill fun.

 This trail is awesome! A little bit of everything... downhill, climbs, drops, corkscrews, table top jumps, bridges, etc.and is still being polished! Probably classify as Intermediate this is a bit more difficult than Beginner but a sweet step up from the Basic Training Skills Area.
