Foo Fighter - mysterious flying objects A short but fun jumps trail mixed with all sorts of jumps, lumps and bumps.

This trail is Graded 4, Advanced, but if you take all the easy lines it is a very user friendly jumps trail that can be ridden by competent Grade 3 riders. If you dial up the speed and take some of the hard optional lines, then the trail earns it's Grade 4 stripes.

Everything on the trail is roll-able, there are no compulsory gaps or drops. However, like any jumps trail, if you pick up speed be prepared to catch some airtime! The important thing is to know how to land safely ;-)
