An intermediate level flow style cross country mountain bike trail that takes riders from the peak of Brockway Mountain all the way back to the edge of town. Riders are treated to long fast sections of single-track trail, linked with berms in the corners and lots of amazing views out across Lake Superior.

Flow passes beneath the Overflow flow-over and links in with the intermediate level jump line Daisy Dukes at the mid point.

 Not as flowy as the name might lead you to think. Quite a bit of loose rock along the trail. A few really great views of Lake Superior. Watch the very end of the trail as it gets a bit technical with rock formations you have to ride.
