A brilliant trail that can be ridden either up or down.

If going up there is a short section that most people walk. Don't let that deter you, the climb is amazing and this is a fantastic way to get to Cheshire Cat.

If going down, the trail is super fun and has some fantastic bench cuts.

 Great tech climb to Cheshire Cat. Lots of obstacles and woodwork!

 Upper section: high speed flow interrupted by tight switchbacks built for climbing speed.
Lower section: more consistent flow, with enough tech climbing moves to keep you on your (figurative) toes.
