Flowy trail through old forest starting with small berms and jumps, leading into several optional technical features, including gaps, bridge drops and rock drops. Lower section finishes with more flowy and tight switchback single track.
All features are bypassable making main trail a Blue. However, riding all features makes it a Black run that can be challenging/entertaining for advanced riders as well.

Access Info
