Originally this trail was only a small connector trail linking single-track in Shunah Mines to the double-track in Centennial Park. In 2016 the trail was upgraded and is now the first machine built, downhill specific trail in the park. Riders will find a fast and flowy single-track descent with plently of rollers to coast over or, for the more daring riders; get airborne.

The trail now exits lower on the Adventure Trail where riders can either head back up to the right into Shuniah Mines or cross over into Centennial park via the small connector trail to the left.
