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.

      Primo conditions today. Heavy veg can make visibility to rocks tricky during fast descending so take some care.

      Was primo today. Heavy veg along trail can make visibility to rocks on the way down tricky.

      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.

      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.
