The lower section of Lava Flow can be accessed from either middle/upper Lava Flow or via the Lava Connect trail from the top of the Sunshine Accelerator lift. A flow trail with rolling terrain, dirt & brick berms and optional jumps, lower Lava Flow, when access from the Sunshine lift, is the next step in progression after the FTL trail. For intermediate and advanced riders, lower Lava Flow is a fun way to end the 4.5 mile top-to-bottom descent.

       This trail can get VERY sandy and dusty making it hard for young riders. If someone thinks it will be an easy ride just because it is green, they will be disappointed.

       I wouldn't say it's a green on a dry day becuase it gets very dust and it's hard to keep speed and keep from slipping out.
