Steep trail with a mix of old school and new school switchbacks and loamy sections of trail. Old line and new line cross each other, lots of options to mix it up makes a hundred ways to ride this trail Some small rock gardens, a view, and technical natural features plentiful. This trail is second only to Nervous Shakedown in terms of vertical drop for trails on the Bluff.

      Huge tree across Bi-Polar around where it joins Skitzo. Awkward to get over/under but can be done.

       One ride and I'm addicted. Tons of trail options and ways to ride features. Definitely worth exploring for intermediate-advanced riders. Some pretty steep sections so make sure your brakes are dialed in!

       Probably closer to a double black, especially in the wet.
