This trail is a downhill technical trail with some climbing in the middle and at the end to join up with Shapeshifter Trail. There are some technical features like rock rolls, ladder bridges and awkward cobbled corners that will test your skills. If you are not comfortable with the log ride at the beginning, it might be best to stick with Thunder Turkey which is also a ton of fun.

Access Info

Access trail from Boulevard trail, about 30 feet south of Summer Trail and 150 south of entrance to Mr. Toad trail.

       The Trail lacked flow and consistency. Watch when you get onto the first road, go right you can easily miss the trail.
      Trail isn't very hard but I would recommend riding Turkey Thunder instead.

       It's a pretty good technical and fun first half of the course. Definitely properly rated since a lot of people will walk all the planks and ride around most of the technical features. If it wasn't for the wet boards on the curvy wooden feature, I would've attempted to ride it. Great trail!
