A popular choice despite getting roughed-in over the years because of faster, less-technical riding with stunts on the side, and the only true top-to-bottom trail built on this aspect.

       Great blue tech trail with some cool little chutes and rock rolls. Also has some fun wood features. Great bang for your buck.

       Two trees down at the top of Eli. I didn’t ride the upper section so I don’t know if there’s more. I did ride the lower sections and all the rest are clear.

       Yeah couple trees at the top like stated already. Last 1/3 of the TOP section is a small river. Needs a few days of sun to dry out but she's ripable. Spicy, but ripable!

       New large trees down on second section, just after the new connector trail below the stone circle.
