more difficult downhill trail, more dirt jumps, less berms. Can be risky for beginner riders to get out of control.

       Jumps with Flow and Berms! Just a Step Up from Upper A great transition. Less advanced riders can still have fun rolling jumps with speed control and a few jumps offer “ride arounds”

       A great continuation of flow and fun after upper drain, but with some proper jumps added. Carry your speed through the turns and let it fly!
