Super fun trail that is basically one large technical section. Lots of roots, rocks, a few steep sections, and plenty of bridge over water crossings to make it faster. This trail tends to funnel water down the middle so stay away when raining. Beware the mud holes as they will swallow your wheels.

      Rooty and technical areas. Can be tough when wet. Always seems to have areas that hold mud.
