       I drive all the way from Indianapolis just to ride the trail over and over again. The jumps I'm brave enough to hit are built perfectly with the right lift and landing and there are so many of them. In one day of riding I get so much jumping in I feel like my skill level just soars compared to when I arrived. The rock garden is not flat either, it goes downhill and is FAST with small jumps and drops intermixed. With the right suspension it is a blast! I can't give this trail a high enough rating because 10 out of 5 stars wouldn't do it justice. If you live in the Midwest you HAVE TO ride this trail. Totally worth the 3 hour drive and more.
