Downhill pumptrack style trail with berms, woops, doubles, step downs. Designed as a "youth" skills trail, some sections can be "tight" for longer bikes, bigger wheels and bigger dudes... but its super fun!

 There is actually same amount of climb as descent.. as soon as you connect to shale at the bottom tho it gives some more cutbacks to lengthen descent
