      Was there on 12/22/2020 and it was closed for maintenance. A local said it would reopen later in Winter.

      PBJ stands for Pump, Berms, and Jumps. Good descriptor of the trail, plus some techy features thrown in as well. It is not a flow trail, as there are quite a bit of rocky sections and such, but it is a fantastic, techy downhill.
