Test your rock skillz on the Tech Loop. Follow the white dots....if you're able. It's not a race, so take your time and session a few of the more difficult sections. Some have multiple lines, so try a few.

For maximum fun, only ride counter-clockwise.

       Most of the features have bypasses, so this trail is a green if you bypass The paint is very faint, but if you see a pile of rocks, you can probably roll over it.

       Lot's of cool features, but you have to keep your eyes out for them. Watch for the paint, or any outcroppings or piles of rocks. If you miss this them, then it's just a boring xc trail lol!
