Lee’s Way is an amazing flow trail with beautiful big berms, well formed table tops, a proper gap jump, a step up and a small step down. This trail is fast and flowy allowing riders to really lean into the berms and build speed for the fun parts. This is a must ride trail if you’re in Avon. Added in 2014 as part of the West Avon Preserve trail network.
Finish the run by jumping right onto BLT for more flow and air.
