Another classic addition to the Maple climbing trail system. This bit has mixed ups and downs but mostly up. Well sculptured trail that is a nice start to climbing to the summit. Thanks to all those with a hand in this gorgeous build.

       This trail is great for families with kids learning to ride because it's pretty smooth, not many roots.

      My son (5.5, strong for his age) walked the ups and rode most of the down bits.
