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

       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.
