Super fun flowy trail with lots of undulating ups and down. Built within a tight space and engineered quite remarkably. Lots of fun wooden features to play on, a couple raised bridges, a medium size drop and a really cool teeter totter to finish things off.

      Teeter totter still needing love. Just roll the drop, instead.
