  • Global Ranking

The Shinning has lots of optional lines with large wooden drops, jumps, and ramps. This trail is super fun and is really drifty with a mix of loam and loose soil. Technical bits here and there and great flow in other sections. Very fun and connects to lots of other great trails.
