Full Nelson was constructed in conjunction with Anthill films and Red Bull with plenty of input from Brandon Semenuk. The trail is fast, Machine built with lots of rollers and variations to keep the challenge up. Just another fun way down the mountain. Cakewalk is a popular descent into the trail or climb the Legacy to access.

       Few trees down today on the trail, Dec 17th. One on high speed corner. Marked above it on the trail with some wood.
