       Blue trail at best. All the jumps are rollable and can be done by any intermediate rider.

       Fun flowy mostly mild downhill with some nice jumps. There was one drop that gave me an oh $#!& moment but the rest was easily rolled over if you didnt want to jump then.

       Relatively easy for a black diamond. Great introduction to serious machine built DH trails, would highly recommend getting familiar with this trail if you’re planning on riding lift access parks. Lots of fun features. Rock roll drop to step-up is my personal favorite spot on the trail, gap the roll option and boost the step-up as hard as you can, you seriously can’t overshoot it, trust me, I tried.

       Super fun trail. Did the step up many times. If you take the drop line to corkscrew I recommend to walk it first. Saw an experienced rider flip and fall into the creek.

       Watch out for the drop right before the downhill berm into the step-up. Scared the sh*t out of me since you can't really see the landing going into it.
