This trail is a lesser known gem. Plenty of smooth and wide open stretches to let the brakes go and catch some air over the little mounds. There are several technical rock sections, both short ones and longer more difficult ones. Every technical area has at least one bit of trail to take you around or to send you through an easier option making it a great trail for a variety of riders.

      Lots of washed out areas. Stream crossings are about a foot deep. Still a blast of a downhill!
