Most of the trail is downhill only, with the exception of the upper 1/4 which is 2-way from Kent's Trail to the top. Super smooth and just flows but you'll have to pedal on some sections to keep your speed up. There is a little rooty section that will take you by surprise, but it is only a few meters long, then it is back to the easy roll.

       In the little Canyon section, I feel like I remember there being a few small (2-3') drops, but they seemed to have been removed when I rode through yesterday. Disappointing if so.

       So much fun!
      The best trail for new riders. My 7yo rode Phil's twice from right below the black diamond section down to the bottom. Trail is super smooth and has a few rocky sections to keep it interesting.
      The locals are super friendly and I very much enjoyed talking with them.
