Wasp Nest at rock-face corner before crossing gravel road. My brother and I were both stung twice each. They are aggressive and chased us down...

 There is a new reroute to the right after the log drop. Get some speed, there is a small drop then a steep hill down to a step up jump (with no gap). There is a large rock with a cliff that is unridable unless your insane and launched off it, not rollable. I suspect that the builder is not done and plans to build a ladder down off the rock. there is a ride around to the left. The reroute connects back to the trail after this, its only about 100m long.
