The top half of the trail is full of small-large jumps, bridges, rock features and the signature rock face that you ride down, or stay of the ridge for many challenging rock drops. The bottom half below the cut block has two separate sections, the old-school steep and rooty trail or the newer "Gully" that has several large gap jumps and hips. Both lower trails end near the top of the Whistling Post trail.
