       One the best technical trails south of Harrisonburg, VA. So many good line options! This is what you ride to prepare for Squamish.

       Cool trail. Looks more like seldom used hiking path.
      Black diamond really not red.
      Super xc techy. All but the brst will b walking.
      If u can ride this you are ready for 90% of black trails out west.
