Moonshine is lumpy in places and has some rooty, technical sections - so fun to ride and in keeping with the style of Roller Coaster with a couple of sections that step it up a little.

Ride it a few times and you'll start to dial in the high lines and figure out how to finess the flow from the trail.

Access Info

The entrance to this is just before you exit from Roller Coaster onto Ring Road. It runs parallel to Ring and is a good alternative to the road or the last part of Roller Coaster across ring Road (which gets little traffic and is a bit of a grovel).
