Fast and flowy, nothing crazy; a few drops, and a couple of jumps at the end. Access it by riding up 142 main, or Branch access Road if you're looking for a challenge.

       Looks like a lot of moto guys have been riding this recently given the tire tracks in there. Getting really chewed up given how pristine it was pre-snow.
