Bullit's evil twin. Trail was built pretty much for a DH event so its plenty rough n rowdy. This trail takes it up a notch and has some serious steepness to it. Trail is rough has exposed roots and a few drops. There are a couple of challenging jumps if you have an eye for seeking those types of features.

Trail seems neglected, fern fronds coming up in the middle of it. Rideable most features are eroded.

Trails is in almost as good of condition as Bullit. A little overgrowth but super fun to lap!

 Lets revive this place!!! Payback and Bullit are in decent shape. The other two not so much. I'd encourage people to go. It's still an awesome, shuttleable location!

 Place is riding Prime this year. Thanks to whoever is in there clearing brush. Might fix the bigger (second to last) drop today, little rotten on the left side.
