Fun little section with a twisty skinny, some short tables, and nice log wall that tilts you for some speed into final table. If you live in the DC area, Boss and Yard Sale make meadowood worth a quick city escape. In terms of difficulty, in all, meadow is a lot easier than green at fountain. That said, meadow is simply more fun. Between Boss and Yard Sale you can really work on jumps, skinnies, and smaller burms to home your skills. There are also a few nice, easy down hill sections, too.

Even experienced riders will have fun on the two feature sections of this trail.
