       Hi Raymond, how would you categorize this trail? Should it have a harder rating or easier rating? We tried to make sure the trail had A & B lines so that it could be ridden by beginners or those that prefer not to catch air or roll some sketchy sections. Would signs at the jumps and other sketchy features indicating intensity help? Feedback helps us better figure out how to rate these trail going forward.

       This trail is rough condition following the storms and flooding. Parts are unrideable due to debri and washout.
