The challenges of this final section demand that you keep your attention focused on the trail ahead as you claw your way around the hillside to gain the jumps and berms leading to the final thrilling decent: a white knuckle ride of step-downs, singles, doubles and tabletops that's as fast (or slow) as you want to make it, with a black-graded option to the left half way down. Either way, you have the choice of the skinny log ride (black grade) or curving but not-too-narrow timber trail (suitable for most riders) that lands you right back at the start.
