      super flowy and decent sized jumps with a nice step-up at the end, be cautious of the first berm, as it is steep but otherwise an amazing trail

      Nice run. First 50 meters of steep cornering scared the crap out if me as a new rider. After that's it's good. Nice flow to the route.

      Definitely plenty of howling with delight going on here. Super fun trail, fast and flowing. Jumps all well shaped. There are a couple near the end that are just a little steeper, so watch for those on your first run down.
