Flowy berms, a few small jumps, one medium jump with gap. Everything has a go-around. Narrow bench cut for some of the sections. Steep Climbs, Caution on rollers as puddles may accumulate at G-out and you enter them blind. Climb up Rehab to get to start of trail, to avoid riding trail backwards.
This trail is still being revised by its builder.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

Disclaimer

Due to elevated exposure and several blind features, trail "difficulty rating" has been bumped up one level above technical difficulty.

       This is IMHO the best trail in the valley. Thank you!

       One of the best trails in the Don. Fast and flowy. Some of the climbs are tricky because they’re tight and steep. Quite exposed in areas but if you can comfortably ride Catalyst or Party Atmosphere you’ll have no problems here.
