Also known as the magic carpet ride this in the down direction is a fun fast flowing trail that end with a short fast drop down the "yellow brick rd" (a rock armoured section) just before Laurel Run Rd. This is a great beginner through experienced individual trail that is a great end to any ride. Going up you will lose a lung climbing the "yellow brick rd" but then it is a gradual warm. The section before/after the intersection with Kettle Trail is definitely more challenging and is black diamond

Access Info

Off Laurel Run Rd of from Kettle trail or North Meadows Rd

       Start of the trail ha some rock gardens but totally rideable. Easily walkable for beginners. Pretty flowy otherwise. Switchbacks near the end are pretty tight. The “Yellow Brick Road” at the end is really fun but would be pretty intimidating for a beginner.
