I prefer riding Hawknest from the northeast to the southwest. When you connect via the 136th Street Express, you'll be in for a few miles of overall elevation gain. At some point, you'll swing to the south ... and the fun will start. The trail contour just works, and you'll be able to carry a good bit of speed. There are a few slight rises in the trail, and you can choose whether to air it out or bump up the speed by doing a good ol'-fashioned BMX pump into it. This trail could be improved with a nice big berm here or there, but that's nitpicking. This trail will make you happy every time you ride it.
