      Good mix of flow and tech, must have been work since the previous comments. Berms, fun wood and rock work, a few table tops and side hits, optional doubles, small rollable drops, great finisher.

      I'm not sure I agree with the above commenters, it's a blue techy trail. there's roots and rocks because it's a blue techy trail.

      Maybe this crowd needs to stick to the green trails.
      Not every trail needs to be 10' wide and super smooth, how do riders progress?

      This trail is very eroded and after a great combination with EXpresso and Lower EXpresso, this trail is a very disappointing ending. I wish this trail could get re-worked to make that ascent great from start to finish.

      Pretty sizeable tree down right at the very end just a few metres before it hits the street, absolutely nutted myself

      With how much fun the Expresso / Lower Expresso combo is, Pennzoil is pretty disappointing these days. The trail is heavily eroded, and most people seem to stay away on their final descent back to Braemar. It would be pretty rad if this could someday see the same manicuring that Lower Expresso gets.
