The main way down from mid mountain to the village. It has a bunch of fun jumps and wooden burms to ride. At the top Easy rider (a green) splits off to the left. Half way down Lift line (blue) heads off on the left and Woods (blue) to the right.

ADAPTIVE MTB INFO
Rating: aMTB1 - No Obstacles Exist
If linking with Liftline, fork left to stay on Mineshaft and access Liftline trailhead from fire road to avoid tight tree dilemma

Access Info

The entrance is right off of the road down the mountain.

       Best way to end you day. Flowy berms and jumps then leads to 25jumps Park for a little jump line practice
