Starts at the intersection of Mel's, it has some decent flow with some berms. Generally windey and not too steep but you can still manage to get some decent speed. The trail brings you to a junction where you can choose to ride uppercut or continue down lower gear jammer where it is a steeper, loose and rocky descent with a few rollable drops in the mix. Quite rutted and short but good fun.

 Top half is open, but the bottom half still says closed, but no barrier. I didn't ride it but I'm guessing others may have.
