       What's not to like! Cruise it or pin it, it's a trail for all seasons too being mostly under forest. Great flow, enough going on to keep you focused but not very committing either so it's more fun than thrill.

       A MUST RIDE!

      Up there with some of the best raw trails I have ridden. On par with The Blue Tier and Atlas (Derby) albeit a touch more difficult. Was a bit moist the day after some good rain so 2 days after would be PRIME.
