The Boomslang is back! This short trail trail links Mamba and Snake Eyes. As you exit Mamba at speed the trail starts with some air time off the jeep track if your speed is high enough. After another small take off a sharp left-hander starts an off camber pump track like traverse where maintaining speed is tricky. Towards the last half, an optional rock drop off to the right creates an opportunity to test your nerve and skills with a rocky, slow run up. The last few meters consist of flat corners and some old tree roots to test riders to the end.
