Recently restored in fall 2020. All wooden features (except the log ride) have loamy, steep ride arounds. This trail has ramps, drops, berms, loam, step down jumps, steep sections and is fast. Definitely a double black but not the hardest trail on copper, it's not as technical as body break and the drops have nice smooth and long landings. Best thing is once you've laughed yourself to heaven with joy from Buckwheat you can pick from other trails at the bottom like Babyweight, Send Nudes, Leftovers, and a couple of other free ride trails.

This trail is unsanctioned.
