Chunky, loose, and fast, Botanical is a classic San Luis Obispo trail. Upper half (before intersection with Morning Glory) is covered with small pebbles, baby-head sized rocks, and rain ruts, however, it's pretty easy to get going really fast, just make sure you have some tough tires! The lower half of Botanical (after intersection with Morning Glory) is significantly chunkier and looser with a few rollable jumps.
