In a nutshell this trail is smooth and fast with nearly zero technical sections. There are few rocky sections and trail surface is more dirt than sand allowing for good grip. There are well built berms as well as a natural and built jumps. While there is no option to ride around these features, they are all tabletops and can be rolled safely. Do not discount this trail for having a low difficulty rating; it is fast and fun. This trail should be included in any ride at bootleg canyon.

       Finally got to check this new trail out. I honestly thought this was going to be a very basic trail with no features but I was quite mistaken. This trail is loaded with fun berms, roller coasters and jumps. There's a couple jumps just south after crossing Par None and several near the end of the trail. This trail is definitely a downhill primer for beginners.
