Short Bus, the second section of the Pigs on the Wing loop, is similar to Pigs on the Wing. Many very difficult features connected by very easy bits of trail. However, most of the features this time are jumps, and some have ride-arounds. Short Bus is just as hard as Pigs, though the trees are a bit tighter and it's a bit less eroded. Short Bus is not worth the climb on its own, combine with Pigs.

Access Info

First right coming up the Flank from Function. Directly across from Pigs on the Wing.
