Super fun and flowy trail, many side jumps and stunts - and most can be rolled. Only one gap if I remember correctly. Most are well marked with bike-park-type flags. All have chicken passes. Some tight clearances in between trees in a couple of location, but easy to clear with some focus. Definitely worth the climb.
