The top part of this trail is like most of Happy Jack: a little rutted, pretty straight, and fast. The bottom section was redone in 2018 to replace some unsustainable, fall-line trail with flowy, sustainable trail with some berms, rollers, and rock features. Fun both directions

       Probably the best trail in Happy Jack presently, great flow, fairly fast, and very well constructed.
