The reward for trudging through Primer, this is technically "upper Primer" as they are meant to be ridden together as a CCW loop. This trail has nice flow and features tight singletrack along a crumbly hill side. Some turns are flat and loose, tighter swtichbacks have berms. Challenge yourself to carry speed through the flat turns and into the technical sections. Stay on the pedals to clean the few steep, punchy climbs. Yes, there is a sand dune on this. No, it won't ruin your day.

Big sand trap in middle but if riding down it’s doable!
