Singletrack trail that starts narrow and winding with some roots and very short uphills to negotiate. As it descends it opens up into a series of hand-built berms with a few small rollers and kickers. Midway it comes out onto a landing and then resumes into a faster and wider trail with rollers, doubles, berms, and hip jumps.

Access Info

Access the top from a short descent down Bailout-Highballer Tie Rd (BLM 14-7-35), with the trail entrance at a landing with a picnic table. The bottom of the trail exits at Dutchman-Springboard Tie Rd (BLM 14-7-36). Note that this trail is downhill-only.

 Upper is pretty rooty and rough then transitions into bermy section. Lower is all about jumps. Rollers, doubles, berms.
