Yet another classic brought back from the dead thanks to the NSMBA TAP program. New tables, optional step down and plenty of fast & flowy terrain, the trail is good for big or little bikes. The old drop has recently got a tranny with rumour of a higher, shorter take off in the near future. Avoid the chunder exit by riding straight across Incline to connect to the BP along the short & sweet Pingor Connector built by the Shore Corps.

Cannot be in better shape. Recent rains and a couple days to dry in cool temps = perfection. Velcro trails.

 Is the ladder over the step down going to be permanent now? I hope not...
