       Just a stunningly beautiful trail. If you like single track rain forest style, you'll love this. Nice flowy climb if you're heading towards Morte Lake direction. This is the kind of trail that makes you want to ride more. Kudos Quadrites!

       Really loved this trail. Super flowy down towards the end if you’re heading towards the parking lot. Had a ton of fun on the curvy whoop-y sections. Highly recommended.
