Lower Crash Palace is a great section of trail with a handful of stand out features. It starts off with a small drop in where it then plunges down into a singletrack section leading you into "The Drop". There is a chicken line around as it is a substantial drop. The Drop rides well and is roll-able if you are brave. Best check it out if you haven't done it before!

It gets great raves by expert riders for technical thrills, which include drops, off-camber, roots and clay

Muddy and slippery as you might expect for winter conditions. Still very ride-able and fun.
