Double-black freeride trail that builds from an easy start over some tabletops and berms.

After a larger table that is mislabeled as a "drop", it cranks hard right through a wide open berm with a shark-fin type jump in the middle. From there downhill and up into a step-up with a flat landing, then off the top through a baby step-down into another step-up like table. High on the left from there is a gap jump comparable to what you can find on Brake Check.

You will want to scout this next one. A large ladder drop to pavers, followed by a quarter-pipe step-up gap back to the peak of a hill, and then a roll-down to a drop comparable to the Fish Gap on Sickter Gnar 1. At this point you'll be plenty fast to jump across the creek.

Two more jumps will finish your run.

Access Info

Access the top of this trail from the midpoint of Banzai Downhill 4, below the RIP section and technical section and right before the Tinkerbell Jumps. Access the bottom of this trail from Socialist Valley Rd, just west of where climbers turn to the right to head to Basic Training.
