       Fun trail system. Seems to be little known but worth it if you are in the area. Trails are fast and smooth, not very technical, lots of climbing and great downhills with high berms, jumps, switchbacks and flow.

       Highly recommend these trails. Lots of fun downhills, some good slow up hills too. Nicely done trails!
