Coming from the Newport side, the trail starts with a pretty technical downhill section (not beginner friendly). There are some man-made rock gardens with an optional easier dirt line. A couple small optional man made jumps as well. After the initial DH, it's all easy flowy fun single track.

Access Info

From the Newport side there's a small unmarked opening on Bommer Ridge.

      Overall good shape but the DH section at beginning is getting very rutted and tons of braking bumps. Not nearly as smooth as it was a few months...

       Lizards is decent fun, BUT, all the work climbing from the parking area and NO singletrack back down, that is CRIMINAL.
