This is all about flow. There's an initial drop that serves as skill filter, jumps, gap jumps, berms, a wooden wall ride and larger jumps and drops as you descend. There is a trail/road gap that crosses North Caddywhomper Way trail so please make sure all is clear before you jump. Gap jumps on the lower segment with go-around options. Increasing size ladder bridge drops on the final segment.

       This is probably the best trail in the whole park, keep your speed and the gaps will be easy to clear.

       Not sure why this rating is so low. For the space they have, they did a great job with this one. All the features are built well. Short and Sweet.

       Can be managed by intermediate and some beginner riders. Drops and jumps can be rolled around for the most part. The starting skill feature is a rock drop that can be rolled over. Overall super fun trail.
