Very nice technical area added recently. Both the South and North are very fun if you enjoy going over, down and through some big rocks. Every extreme technical area has a nice bypass for riders not wanting the full monty. There are also other lines not seen on the first few passes.

There are some potential very tough uphill segments, but everything is walkable up and down and there is nothing that will jump out and surprise you with danger. If in doubt, get off, walk the section and look for your line. All in all, this is EXACTLY what this trail system needed.

The North is probably slightly easier than the South.

       Great ride. Good rock faces to ride on and some challenging hills

       Easy way around most hard feature. Not very demanding. Pretty flowy for most of it with a few small technical section. Still super fun.
