       This trail is part of a collection of 4 downhill trails, and is pretty flowy, especially at the top. Definitely a fun ride. The bummer is you have slog back up the boat dock road after every run.

       This was a really fun short trail that was not very technical - some roots and rocks, but nothing unmanageable. Lots of ups and downs. Will def come again.

       This is one of my go to trails. Perfect warm up climb that doesn't burn you out, and a flow trail once you reach the top and cross the road. It also leads to the single, and double black trails.
