Just a slight amount of dampness to cut off dust and hold the corners together. Super fast riding.

 Despite the dire warnings at the top of the trail, this is a nice blue flow trail. No drops, no gaps, no steep rock roll downs. Every thing can be rolled nice and slow.

 If you are on a Enduro or DH bike I agree with the other comment that this is a blue trail.

If you are on a more of an XC bike the top half of the trail is a black diamond and the bottom half is borderline a blue square\black diamond.
