       This is one of my new favorite trails in the twin cities! Best berms easily.

       Really fun little system that has offerings for all skill levels. Also, like ekrubm said in the comment above this is home to the best berms in the MSP metro. Sessioning the black loop is a blast.

       Pretty cool new trail offering lots of flow and a very high density of unique features not really seen in the rest of the metro. My only suggestion would be to take another pass through and add some dirt to some of the landings as most are very flat and maybe add more defined lips on one side of some of the rollers to turn them into tables.
