      Lots of fist size divots in the trail. This trail was rough even on the full suspension bike. I recommend gloves to keep the numb hands to a minimum.

       This trail has been re-routed due to poor drainage

       Fun little downhill section, with a few decently steep and tight switchback berms toward the bottom. A few smaller obstacles on the outer edge of the trail in certain spots for kickers too. Dont hike a bike up this, it sucks, and you may get run over.
