Super Fun trail with drops and jumps.. All Drops have ridearounds, or smaller drops.. worth checking out even if you walk a few.

       A lot of fun downhill. Mostly a very difficult black but has highly technical features (with ride arounds if needed).

       Majority of the trail is single black with several double black obstacles (mainly large drops 5' range) mixed in. Each double black had a ride around. There is some exposure on a few sections. There are several "play areas" allowing riders to experiment with the terrain however there are boundaries on how far you can go out. I really didnt see many signs of popular lines in these areas. Maybe I just missed it. Most of the trail is pretty techy with a lot of rocks to navigate through. I could see some flow possible the more you ride it but being my first time there was a lot of stopping and accessing the features. Enjoyed the trail!

       I love technical descending but I thought this trail was overrated and overhyped. It didn't have much flow but maybe that's because it was my first time. I wanted to love it but I was a bit disappointed.
