Fast, flowy trail with a lot of berms, some doubles, and some gap jumps. There are a few technical rock sections as well. It also features a rock wall ride/berm that is a work of art Flow in either direction, although the rock wall is designed to be ridden counter-clockwise.

       One of my favorite trails I've ever ridden! Very well built, with great flow, jumps, beautiful rock work... truly a GEM in NWA! I highly recommend it!

       I think the trail rides better counter-clockwise.

       Not sure this the best trail ever- a lot of pedaling which made techy sections difficult and the flowy rewards we're short lived. Maybe if your in really good shape this is more fun ????

       This trail is a must go. It's a little technical and a lot of fun. I would say this and the ledges in bella vista are my two favorite trails.
