Fun with great views. Some flowy sections with quite a few technical, rock garden areas. Nothing too crazy as long as you enjoy bouncing around on the rocks.

      Great trail conditions from rain 2 days ago. There is a fallen tree across the trail near the top of Gibson Jack.

       If your looking for a fun ride both up hill and down, this is it. Lots of technical rock gardens and float sections. More of a trail for confident riders.

       Pretty fun trail, not sure it should be a black rating. Aside from a few pops, tight turns and rock gardens there are no features. Could be flowier if it were a bit wider, but a fun descent nonetheless. I climbed up the GJ double track and dropped this, good pairing. There are definitely hikers, so I’d recommend a bell just as an extra buffer.
