       One of the best smooth flow trails at Oak Mountain. If you like Jekyll and Hyde you will love this! Highly recommend!

       Fun trail. This is built identically to Jeckl n Hyde but just less sustained climbing and newer as of 2019 so roots n rocks havent been exposed by rain tet.
      Dont skip it bc someone rated it green. Yes is rideable by beginner but fun flow trail.

       This trail pushes me to ride harder than other trails because it's more fun fast.
