Its a rollercoaster... Its a backcountry flow trail, what I mean by that is there aren't any large berms or jumps, it's flowy due to the terrain. There's also some roots and rockgardens throughout.

       Great trail for beginners to learn how to pick up speed fast and go over small obstacles and also great trail for advanced riders because of the great flow and ability to go fast around all the curves
