Classic 18 road ridge trail. Super fun and flowy trail that has some narrow sections of ridge riding, some blind rollers, moderate technical areas, swoop turns. There are some small jumps, but no mandatory gaps. Watch your speed though, as some of the blind corners can catch you if you come in too hot. Lap this one and you'll find some incredibly fun lines and plenty of flow.
One of the best in the area, use this to continue on to MoJoe across the access road and keep the smiles going.

Access Info

Use the access to Frontside, then veer left up a short step section.
