 Pretty solid trail.
consists of fast flowy up and downs. decent jumps to mess around on. has a little bit for everyone i would suppose.
more maintained by locals instead of any of the shops.

 Pretty fun trail for the local area. You can take the kids on it, or rail it faster and hit all the jumps. It has a log ride in one area if you jump up on it.
