Sandy's newest jump trail is an expert-level, machine built jump trail. Vast majority of the jumps are gaps so pre-riding is advised to ensure success and safety. Trail starts big with a few 20-25' gaps, then moving to gaps in the 10-15' range before mellowing in the second half with gaps more in the 5-10' range.

Enter trail via the lower Hide N Seek entrance (across from the bottom of Flowmotion) - pedal up trail over two bridges, push up other side of bridge up the rock garden- 50ft to the entrance of "Johnny Royale". IF your coming from the upper system- its at the very bottom of "Two Turntables" or bottom of "Upper Hide N Seek"

      stop pushing up the trail! its dangerous for riders going down, especially if you have an unleashed dog in the middle of the trail when a rider is flying around blind corners. Someone is really going to get hurt trying to avoid people being lazy and not taking the road. PLEASE TAKE THE ROAD UP!!!

      a few weeks ago from me posting this comment, someone I talked to 5 minutes before it happened ended up breaking his FEMUR on this trail because he didn't scope it out before sending one of the biggest jumps on the trail. it's an amazing trail but be sure to ride it slowly the first time to check it out and gauge what you can do

      Amazing trail, extremely large gap jumps in the first half, while second half is toned down a bit. Still gap jumps but much more do-able for an intermediate to advanced rider. Trail overall reminds me of A-Line at Whistler Bike Park. Make sure to pre-ride this the first time to gauge each jump.

      It’s really good. Trail speed is perfect for all of the features. My compliments to the builders — excellent vision!

      These are A-line size jumps for reference. All are gaps so no undershooting allowed

      Great trail to learn what slipestyle is all about. Plenty of room for growth and beautifully engineered. Scary lips but trust them!

      This is an advanced slopestyle jump trail. Many jumps are out of tight berms with little room for error. Definitely scope it out before riding the whole thing.
