This DNR-built flow trail links the top of Preston Railroad to the west end of Iverson, providing some new jump opportunities and opening up more alternatives to get back to the trailhead.

This trail is newly completed as of November 2021 and still has some soft areas, so please use good judgement and avoid riding during heavy precipitation events.

      Trace snow at the top. Great traction. Fun fast flowy trail. Some brake bumps in the lower section but not an issue. Probably my new favorite trail! Short Climb out is not great so leave some in the tank.

      Excellent trail, a flowly steep trail like this is very challenging to build in our weather. Stop whining about braking bumps! Its going to happen on a trail like this. Set your suspension up appropriately, and stop braking over the braking bumps. Go faster and they wont be so bad.

      Wow- so fun!! Super fast. Upper section is full of twist, turns, & berms & lower section has tons of jumps. This trail is simply beautifully choreographed, clearly built by professionals. I’m grateful to the trail builders - thank you.

      A bit soft here and there - braking bumps are building in some corners but still a blast and nice break from tech!

      So sick! Just flowy berms and jumps the whole way. Very nice change of pace from all the rocky, rooty tech in the PNW.

      Absolutely unbelievably fun! Fast and flowy, can be easy or harder depending on how fast you want take it. No drops and little tech, perfectly smooth but will get bombed out with braking bumps as noobs tear it up. Ride fast, take chances and full send all jumps!

      Smooth, fast, flow with plenty of opportunities to get your wheels off the ground. It’s going to be hard for me to ride anything else for a while.

      So good, even when its a bit soft in places. This trail will be absolutely AMAZING once summer hits. Long sightlines, spaced out trees, great corners - you can get some serious speed and send everything safely. Just an incredible job by the DNR build team. We are absolutely spoiled rotten up here.
