 Above my level, but super fun. The trick to have a "smooth" ride is speed. The bottoms of the berms are very sandy, so you will want to ride the berm and thus need the speed. The berms are a tad sketchy because there are trees and roots growing into them. Nothing that someone at level couldn't handle. The wallride has a lip at the bottom so you don't have to ride it. If you do ride it, there is a weird but intentional misalignment that seems to require you jump kinda sideways off the wall. Watch the videos to see what I mean.

I think the gap jump is at the bottom by Canyon Lodge, and it's very easy to ridearound/miss.
