       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.

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