Looking for a mix of flowy berms, rhythm jumps, step downs, and rock gardens? This mixed terrain black diamond is the natural progression step between Jeff’s Whoop Whoop and Eh-Line and Dig Deep. Hone your skills by pumping and jumping your way through this mid paced flow trail. The trail is named after Project Lead Cody Gauer for his great work on the project. Cody, STA President Lee Bolling and STA Board Members first started crafting the vision for Hillside Phase 2 in the Spring of 2016. Seeing the potential hidden in the terrain, Cody and Lee embarked on two and a half years of planning, design, community engagement, and public process to bring this network to life. The finished product is the result of many design iterations and the dedicated work of Gravity Logic, Happy Trails, and the STA Board to make these trails a reality.
