      Went in from the machine-made end and did not go far due to big puddles and large sections of snow and ice still present. More time needed!...

       This is a bit of a hidden gem. Long hard climbs are paid off with fast flowy downhill. Lots of berms, a few jumps, and some easy rock faces that you can ride down. Kudos to the trail builders!

       I was told to do it counter-clockwise but I found both direction fun, counterclockwise you got a few annoying climb up but the last part is very fun with flowy down.
