Fast, flowy, super fun trail with a bit of everything, named after the Driftwood Brewery IPA. Nothing too tricky.

When climbing, after going across the log ride, make sure you go under the wood structure and make it to the very top of the trail for the correct starting point.

      Rebuilt a couple of the lips on the jumps. They need to be bed in a little before anyone rides them in the rain.

       The climb to Fat Tug (Smoky Tickler) is definitely a work out, but such a nice job from the builders, considering the terrain around there , Fat Tug is pretty fun down

       The climb is perfect if you have an E-Bike like me. But I was chased down by a local woman on a normal bike. Insane!

       New middle track has been built. Needs some finishing touches but its awesome, couple rolls and some poppy jumps too. Gets rid of that boring bumpy middle ground. Shoots you out at the road then starting at the high school jump track.

       The new middle section is not built well definitely not as fun as the old middle section. Only ride the new middle section to ride Fat Pug
