Very popular shuttle ride. Quick laps and easy shuttling.
Take a couple laps to learn the trail before you open up the throttle. Many sections of this ride have serious consequences for a mistake.

      All clear except for 1 sizable down tree just below the top. Trail is in good shape, and cow-free until September.
