Gone are the off-camber roots that made the old Lost Nation such a bear! We reworked Lost Nation, connecting it to the Wiggle with a 90 foot bridge across a cedar swamp and then built a series of berms to turn off-cambers into flowing lines. Now the best way to get from the Wiggle to Woodward's Wheelie or out to 6 Corners (and the new upper section of Rocket Man), Lost Nation has a mix of hand- and machine-built features, with just enough rocks and roots on its back half to keep the tech hounds happy.

Access Info

Look for the northern end coming off The Wiggle, while the southern end can be found at the entrance to Spring Chicken off of the Bayley Hazen ski trail.
