       The worst jump trail I've ridden. I wouldn't use a downhill bike on it because of the large compressions at the base of the jumps. I rode it on my dirt jumper to pump through them. It wouldn't take much to fix but we are still waiting for it to be done. The roll in to the take offs is far too tight, when hit with any speed you get a chest full of handlebar then bucked off half way up the take off. Most photos are off the two tables in the middle which aren't too bad.

       Forgot to add its marked as a uk proline but I would grade it as a blue grade in the Portes du Soleil rating.

       Extremely fun trial to ride with lots of table tops and quite a few ttfs it is great to ride on any bike i have ridden it on a hard tail and was fine. If you are able to jump you can get some great air time on this trail. It also has an uplift available to take you up to the top of the trail. I wouldnt rate it a orange I would give it a red at most.
