Also known as the Old Downhill Racecourse, this trail has a bit of everything downhillers love.

Start at the summit, a short hike a bike from the lift up to the tower at the very top, and veer off what to hit the jump onto the jeep road. Continue down the jeep trail for a few feet and take a left into the woods.

A steep tight top section with several technical sections will lead you down to a rock garden half way down.
Cross a road and look for the trail just downhill on the right.

Continue through more tree sections. Then you come back onto the trail and there is a large step down jump.
It can also be hit slowly, or as a very small double.

More single track and you'll pop out at the bottom.

Despite the fact that it's really fun, this trail doesn't get a ton of traffic, so the trail can be a bit rusty.
