       The last three jumps on the trail are very poorly designed. Please take cation as I've seen 2 people taken to the hospital on one day so far.

       Broken vortex space unicorn hip is a fun trail, but I would recommend changing the name of it again.

       Great trail, perfect conditions now, flowy with rollers, berms and a fun corkscrew at the end. Enter from Rocky Roller and you won’t be disappointed.!

       Super fun, short n' sweet trail — lots of little jumps and berms, and the "corkscrew" near the end is memorable. (The small jumps at the bottom of the trail appear to be sorted out now.) Start on Roxy Roller to get your full flow going!
