This trail was completed in Fall 2016 and really showcases some impressive trail building skills. The trail includes a few bridges, many pump track feel sections, lots of berms and an easy climb for all levels. It's a very scenic trail with a section that takes you through the 'gold mine' a rocky area with a mini-canyon to ride through. The rocks have been well placed and the gaps filled with soil, so no technical skills are required.
