Osprey is a mix of dirt and granite that is good in both directions, but is principally a fast downhill if one starts at the Alabaster cul-de-sac. A rollable drop within the first hundred meters is the most daunting feature on the trail (stay right for the mildest line). Look out for climbers and hikers if descending and remember to yield.
Because Osprey has a lot of dirt, compared to most other trails in the area, it's not the most wet-weather friendly. Avoid when muddy. Some of the local dirt is rich in clay.
The trail was built in the 2017 season, and named after a family of Ospreys that have nested at the cul-de-sac power-pole for several years (and occasionally drop fragments of fish in the area). Originally laid out by Plug for MRWA, adjusted by Trailflow, and then built by MRWA volunteers and Trailflow in Sept-Oct '17.

|Beautiful black granite trail! Somewhat technical for a green trail but with the right line, you can roll everything.|
