Poppa Wheelie uses a small ravine to craft a short but memorable trail experience. At the start, you can either enter the trail through a drop, or head left to take the main path. Expect to ride up berms shaped into the ravine walls along the way.

      Great trail with beautiful berms and a pretty boss drop to start it off.

      If you like this trail you need to check out "Slingshot" at Downieville in Russell, NY
