The Little Larch trail is a great trail for learning to do small, flowy jumps. It is a really fun trail, and most of the third section is a pump track. It mostly goes downhill, there are a few flatter spots, so if you are DH all day every day, you will complain. If you can handle some flat, you will love this trail.
