Rocks and mandatory drops on this rowdy trail. Some cool rooty carpet sections as you head through the wooded sections. A few of the drops have a ride around, but the trail starts right out with a filter feature where it drops you a bit and there is a small gap. Steeps sections can have really dug out roots, so you have to keep up speed to avoid a wheel trap.

There are also some technical sections that you take a bit slower and manage the steepness. Lots of little spots to air out on the drops and rocks. Some woodwork and log jumps make this trail fun for the DH shredder.
