       What a slag to pay the price. And then 40kph down screaming berms! One of the best runs in Central North America!

       Definitely one of the signature trails at Cuyuna. The climb may be a challenge for beginners but you have a scenic overlook up top, a bench if you want to chill for a second, and a very long, flowy descent by Minnesotan standards. If you’re here I would highly recommend hitting this one. Was my favorite trail there until Winze arrived.
