       This trail is a black diamond, not a blue square

       I thought this was one of the best trails out here for a gravity rider on an AM rig! Super fun laps!

       I think semper dirticus is the better run, but HLC is a drop and jump classic and can't be missed. Everything can be taken slow and if you are a newbie, watch someone else first

       Fun and challenging trail. Most of it flows really well but watch out for the step up lip which is the fifth jump. Looks pretty easy but it will Buck you if you're not ready. I broke my collarbone on this one.
