This is my favorite trail in the park. It starts off with some easy climbing and little whoops. Once to the top you drop down some big berms with great speed, and you have a couple optional little senders. The trail is well used so plenty of width but great singletrack and does not get overgrown as it is deep in the big pine trees. Perfect trail to do hotlaps.
