This is a technical loop, laid out as a "lollipop". (Entrance and exit are the 2-way stick, which meets the loop.) Trail can be ridden in both directions, but either option has a few sections that will seem "backwards" depending on which way you choose.

Access near the wet crossing / river ford. Look for the sign for the trail entrance/exit just east of the creek on the south side, near a corner.

This trail has a number of stunts and structures, including skinnies, log-overs, bridges and rock launches. Most stunts have low-consequences or are close to the ground. This trail will test you with obstacles and low-speed balance maneuvers.

Watch out! Some of the tech sections have short run-outs and tight turns immediately following a stunt.

Most stunts sections have go-arounds and options. Make sure to look before you leap, and you can ride around if you're not comfortable.
