Slalom style trail, doubles and drops. Not as hard as it once was due to gaps being filled with wood or dirt to decrease the consequences, but still the most difficult trail on Mt Washington. The second drop is the largest (roughly 8 feet).
Once you hit trail speed, it's smooth as butter, corners usually hold up well over the season, and less Jerry's than on the other trails. Small tech section at the bottom. Definitely the best trail on the hill.

       Wicked trail. Fun features couple inconsistent lips but a fun flow ride

       Easily my favourite trail on the mountain (and at the time of writing, my favourite trail I've ever ridden!). This summer I've progressed from not being able to do any of the drops, to all but one (the second one, largest one on the trail), which I hope to conquer next year. Even before I did any of the drops, I still considered it my favourite because of the jump line in the lower half of the trail
