Irish Death is a fantastic trail and the most DH orientated of the ones adjacent to it. It contains many optional root doubles and fun straight lines as you rhythm or smash your way down the trail. There are two optional jumps at the end of the trail, one which features a sniper landing between two trees.

       I am a huge fan. If you want your flow chunky, this is your kind of party!

       Chunky yet flow-y trail. Good steep sections with loose dirt and smooth drops with some optional gap jumps to mix it up a bit. Loved every bit of it.
