Royalty is a rogue trail that was incorporated into the Carvin's Cove trail system due to the area's demand for technical riding. Despite some modifications to the trail to minimize erosion, the trail is steep, loose, and has a few rutted portions. High-speed senders round out trail and make it an absolute hoot.
