Right from the start there are a few small doubles (rollable) before a couple of sizeable features with easier lines: The first is a drop. When it has had recent maintenance the transition is smooth and it's not particularly difficult. When there has been a period of weather-induced wear the landing can be square edged. Scope it first if you haven't done it for a while.
Shortly after that is a sizeable gap jump. It has an obvious easy route signposted around it, the gap is not massive but does require a reasonably smooth, fast run into it in order to clear it smoothly. The hardest part can be threading through the pine trees straight after the landing!

The remainder of the trail is loads of medium sized jumps, all rollable, with some bigger gaps and drops off line.

Intersects a few times with Corners so if it's getting a bit much you can bail out to the easier flow of Corners trail.
After a section of hairpin berms (which lazy riders plough straight down the middle of because they don't want to turn corners) there are a few progressively bigger jumps. They're rollable at moderate speed, but if you're honking down the trail you're going to be getting some airtime.
