The "OG" trail of Schweitzer Basin created by downhillers / freeriders with improved sections created past few seasons.
All riders should pre-ride the trail and review it's features before committing to speed runs! Besides ordinary features, open gap jumps of a variety of sizes exist.
Watch out for the wandering huckleberry pickers!
