An descending only trail for advanced riders only. This trail is much more challenging than lower Poppin' Tops & Flow State Trails. The progression is intentional, allowing riders to literally and figuratively "work their way up the mountain". - Trail opens on May 19th.

      Only a few puddles, dirt as sticky as glue. Amazingly controllable conditions!

       Open and running well. Massive berm right at the top, some technical root drops as well. Pay attention!

       If you take this slow, it’s totally doable for a more intermediate rider. You won’t have the fun of those great tabletop jumps, but you’ll manage just fine. Very flowy and fast (if you let it), but less technical than say Joyride in Tiger (which is just a blue)
