One of the two new trails at Wirth as of June 2018. The trail is relatively steep, machine built, dirt singletrack with some extremely tight berms and switchbacks. The section at the top is called The Spaghetti Berms, then the Hairpins are the sharp turn sections. The Spaghetti Berms are really tight, you really got to through your bike back and forth hard to keep any momentum. There is a little bypass trail for those berms if you want to skip it.
