      Probably my favorite stretch of trail in the back 40. As above, best ridden north to south or clockwise. Trail features 10 or so rock kickers and drops, all rideable after rain as it is all bedrock. Great wet-weather option if you are looking for a little more than just XC trails.

      Ride CCW if you want to hit the jumps.
