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.

      Rideable, but there are still some pretty wet and slick transitions. Wall was not rideable and the jump after the wall is super slick. Be careful...

      Tree down after the stepdown kicker up top. Don't hit the kicker! Also, top double has standing water in it. Not a good time to ride.

       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.

       Drip Torch has been changed since the description was written. Gone is the initial wood drop and the majority of gap jumps on the upper section. In their place are a small dirt and rock drop in followed by a small gap jump. After the wall ride is a lipped table and then a drop. The road gap has also been removed. The lower wood drops have been removed and step downs built in there place. Drip torch is still an awesome trail it is more forgiving for intermediate riders.

       Second this, Just went expecting to find some wooden features, none to be found outside the wall ride. Still a fun albeit short jump trail. Would be nice if they added some more advance features to some of the trails here now that this trail is more of a blue trail.
