Fast, fun, flowy with well built jumps at the top, moving into bigger, faster sections through the trees. A couple of big jumps/drops that are well signed, and even with padded trees, just in case. If you're planning on riding anything in this particular area, definitely don't miss this one.

       Very nice trail, fast in the upper section and gets better and more interesting towards the bottom. Definitely try it when you are in the area
