This is a pretty fun trail on the way down, with some neat little TTFs. Nothing too scary, and worth a rip before moving on to its big brother, Topp Notch.

 We found this to be a tough blue. Not for the faint of heart and would not take our 8 and 10 year olds on it even though they have ridden many other blues with no problem. Going clockwise around the trail, there are a lot of very, very tight turns in the downhill section, the fat part was pretty fun and then a long, long twisty uphill. If you want to hit the technical features like the ramps, drops and jumps, take the trail counterclockwise.

 My first comment was supposed to say flat part, not fat.
