Very technical roller coaster trail with a pump track in the beginning and a jump section plus some skinnies. Outer loop is mainly singletrack with a short pump track section in the middle. Many trails to mix up the ride every time. Trails are just as much fun in either direction.

Access Info

      Very few parts of the main loop have any real mud, and some small parts are about 70-80% dry even, mostly just damp throughout, very rideable
