       One of my favorites near Jackson. This is a fast and flowy downhill with lots of fun and techie sections interspersed. Be mindful of some of the hairpin turns as they will sneak up on you. Fun extra bits include a gap jump over a Root patch and 3 increasingly hard skinnies over a creek. Bring a buddy and rip it.

       Horrible trail, I had to use my breaks the whole time to avoid rocks and roots, even resorting to jumping over obstacles in order to not blow out my suspension. And don’t get me started on the flora and fauna! Every time I ride this trail I see some majestic moose or cuddly black bear. You have to constantly make sweeping turns around trees and ride pencil thin wooden slabs over snow fed mountain streams. If your into those type of these I’m sure you will love it, if not there is always YouTube.

       Not quite a black diamond. Fast and mostly sweeping turns with small rocks scattered making it more fun. Not a “tech” trail at all. Very fun for most skill levels.
