Good news for those DH riders out there. The DH trail has recently been upgraded and maintained by a bunch of enthusiasts. Still has some features on it that require care so take it easy the first run. (May 25/1Cool

Serious issue with one of the bridges. Trail is closed until further notice (Sept.2/21)

This trail is unsanctioned.

       Can someone put this trail as no longer closed as it has been re-done?
