       Keep your eyes open for some optional features. This is such a fun trail to do and can totally be shuttled. It connects you right into lower Corral trail which is a fun jump line.

       Be smart and don't pedal up the trail. There is a great paved fire road parallel to the trail and no features are technical enough to warrant pedaling up the trail to scope them. It's a fast and popular trail, and you could endanger yourself and others by pedaling up. Have fun!
