Cakewalk was build as a easier alternative to the other downhill trails, but don’t let the name fool you. The trail is old, wet, rooty, rocky and has not seen very much maintenance. This is a downhill trail with a few optional challenges if you know where to look. Cakewalk has become a popular way to access Full Nelson.

Roots and bridges / stunts a bit slick. Dirt is hero.

 Lots of fun sections, with utter crap in between. Could be a great trail with a bit of love.
