Great fast, flowy, bermy trail, with optional air if you want it. This is the easiest of the 4 main trails and generally the one to start with - watch your speed if you don't want air. It offers a good mix of forest and open views of the valley if you can tear your eyes from the trail. Nothing too technical. Worth hoofing up the path from the forestry road to the start section once, otherwise easier to start from where the forest road intersects with the top of the middle section. Carries on into Cadon Bank for a fun ride to the valley floor.
