Flowing single-track with sweeping berm turns and multiple features for advanced riders. A lot of the expert and double diamonds here have some really slow tech or big jumps, but this trail was more about fast and technical. The berms were fast, and the transitions between had big boulders. Some of the jumps would send you into rock gardens.
