SK used to be an old school trail comprised of gnarly/sketchy stunts and structures with high consequences. All the old stuff is gone save for a couple of natural features that sees little to no action. SIMBS and the trail elves have created a short, flowy, pumpy trail with berms, hits, and table tops at near bike park quality rideable for newbies to pros. n
Work seems to be flowing from the top down with the latest feature being a hip/table and small step down with a near-endless tranny (Jun 2014). Rock drops and a steep rock up and over were added in 2015-16 providing advanced options off the main intermediate line. Quite fun to session and work up to getting more and more air time.

Lots of thanks to the folks that keep making this a better trail.

      This is fun. I’m more a fan of old-school tech and jank, but I like this trail from time to time when I feel like going fast and high.

      Word of warning: make sure you know what the words “sofa king” sound like when said out loud before talking about the trail loudly in front of kids and their parents!! Good way to get stern looks Wink
