This trail starts off with a very fast top section that has tons of small rises that work great as lips. Then it becomes slower and tighter for a while before opening up near the waterfall.

 Recent rains have really wrecked everything past duckpond and ruts have ruined most of the flow on the upper half. Not the fun trip it used to be.

 There are riders coming uphill which makes maintaining downhill flow difficult. My assumption was that you are supposed come uphill through powerline trail and go down via shitz or cobbles!

 lots of people climbing uphill, hikers and bikers. Just keep an eye out on your way down. Couple of fun wall rides too.

 this trail is best as a downhill only. if you want to get to the top go up the powerlines firerode heading towards tunnels 4 then follow the preserve path. some parts get skinny and almost ran into people climbing with their heads down.
