A great trail for any rider that has even just a little bit of skill. Fun tabletop jumps down the whole trail. Most of the trail is pretty fast, especially the top. Not much jumping at the top, but some fast berms. The jumps are good beginner size jumps with no gaps, so it is a great trail to practice jumping on.

Due to the mountain coaster construction, the trail does not continue all the way to the Buckin Bronc intersection, but dumps out to the road. So you have to pedal up the road after going under the mountain coaster to get up to the finishing runs. But a new trail connector is being built, but probably won't be ready until the resort opens back up in 2019
