 Really fun trail that is good for Intermediates wanting to move up to Advanced. After coming out of the trees, you briefly merge with Kamikaze. Then there is an "island" where you climb a steep hill (your speed from earlier will push you up the hill with no problem) and there is a series of rollers (or jumps if you make them that) followed by a very steep wooden ramp, which is visible from the parking lot. The ramp ends in a paver with a sharp right turn. It's crazy! But fun.

The rollers and wooden ramp are easily avoided by continuing on Kamikaze after leaving the trees.
