Western extent of Roller Coaster is a flowy technical rolling trail with short steep ups and downs. Lots of rooty technical features that are all rideable but challenging. Careful as it is a two way trail with limited visibility in sections. This trail is also frequented with hikers and trail runners, so be on the look out.
