A black diamond downhill only route running north/south from the Back 40 trail back to the parking lot on Castleford Dr. This flow trail consists of rollers, berms, jumps, and small rock gardens. The trail winds its way down a series of steep slops and has some significant exposure in sections.

The trail has a number of road crossings, so ensure you slow down and watch for traffic.

       Don't be fooled into thinking this is only downhill as it's far from it! It has lots of loose small rock as well.

       Not a black diamond. I believe the sign said intermediate. Also not a down hill flow trail. No berms jumps or drops either. Frown
