       Nice descent with turns and berms , A couple of alternative jumps( no rock garden) , just flowing and flowing, nice trail to practice your turns.
      It was sweeter after climbing it, it is very steep and challenging , but it gives you time to take breath before each steep section.

       This uphill trail rewards you with a sweet return. Don't let the mileage fool you, as it climbs over 750 feet. If you don't want to dab, pace yourself in between the switchbacks, as they will ask 110% to roll. Another great hill to ride for time.

       Steep Bermed trail with tight turns, braking bumps and a few jumps.
