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.
