Super fun and fast berm section. Excellent grade choice and berm radius, ensuring that once you hit top speed you will not need to use your brakes. The trail has some fun uphill technical rock sections that are easy to strike a pedal on if you are not paying attention. The trail signage has updated this trail to a black diamond so the rating here will reflect the trail managers signage.

Access Info

This trail is in the North West area of the Government Peak trail system.

      A little wet, muddy in some areas, but still rideable for people that know how to ride downhill. I’ve taken a few newer rides up, and they did...
