This intermediate trail starts right out with a teeter totter as a filter feature, then takes you right onto some wood work supported table tops and onto the faster flowing berms. More wood supported jumps and a trick booter. Everything can be rolled, not gaps/

       A attempt at a intermediate jump/flow trail. While this is a nice trail, with berms and small jumps, it has very little flow.
      After the teeter-totter, you must pedal hard to have enough speed to clear the jump immediately after it.
      Overall this is a ok trail with very little elevation change. It would be perfect for families, and Strider Bikes.

      Nothing at Bayu Gulch is very difficult, and that’s OK. This is the perfect park to ride at if you have a few hours to kill on lunch, or after work.
