Fast and flowy. Lots of berms, optional jumps (big and small), and some drops. Fun for all abilities

      This middle section was ideal. The Alder section is a typical mess.

       Fast and flowy without being steep. Tons of jumps on this trail make it a blast to ride!

       Fantastic and fun easy intermediate trail with lots of optional jumps or you can simply ride around them. There is however a tricky section at a junction called "checkpoint Juliet". If you are an advanced rider, you can drop into it after it crosses the access road. If you are more intermediate, take a left at the checkpoint, ride a short distance downhill and then join up with SST with a MUCH EASIER access trail.
