      Little bit of maintenance work about halfway down. Strands of plastic pipe coiled on/across the trail.

      Lots of braking bumps before burms. But otherwise a fun trail to warm up on!

      Excellent intermediate trail with minimal technical rock sections. Plenty of packed burns for a flowing downhill and good variety of jumps.
