Very loose and dry. I questioned one section of trail because it was so loose, rutted and marble chunks of dirt and gravel.

 Braille is a nice opposite of Flow, the next trail down Ridge you can choose to ride. Braille is "Natural". It has hard stuff, jump ramps, steepness, and narrow sectors that follow the natural contour of the hill. There are go-arounds for all the jumps that have been built, but some of the steep sectors are scalloped and have root drops that we all have to deal with. I think those are what gives it a Black Diamond. As I mentioned, it's the opposite of Flow, which is buff, bermed, pumped, and manicured. The Demo, and we riders, are so lucky we have BOTH to choose from.
