Starting from the same saddle as Hard Money near the summit of Maryland Mountain, Fast Money is a beginner-friendly intermediate trail bike-only downhill trail (try saying that 3 times fast). It starts out steep and fast and after crossing Easy Money it becomes more windy and playful with plenty of side hits that will keep all riders entertained.
