Probably the best trail in the park, could be described as a good Enduro trail, as there is a bit of peddling and a few uphill sections.

Small jumps, double jumps and tabletops. you can roll most of it easily but if you want to go for it you could get big air and it easily becomes a black diamond.

Beware though, side of track drops of in places so if you get it wrong it's gonna hurt - but the ambulance and chopper are well aware of the track location....

 Super fun descent from a great lookout. Flowy and fast with a few small features to keep it intetesting... typical bike park goodness.

 Some big slips after the cyclone. Possible to get around but probably best avoided.
