      Thick mud with melting snow and deep ruts. Not likely to dry soon.

       This is the best beginner downhill in the region. Flowy but turny you can feel the bike track better when the brakes are released. The banks are small yet comforting.

       Probably the best fun trail. Needs some work near the lower end as the edges are cambered off downhill. Go as fast as you dare. Lots of opportunity to get some air off the rollers and pump along without need to pedal almost anywhere.

       I skipped the lower ratical and crossed at the top to double crosser and ran it down to playground. This is mostly a high speed side hill but its a good cool down.
