Rolling up and down trail along the valley wall with some challenging rooted climbs and a few steep descents depending on which line riders take. It can take a few rides to learn when and where to carry your speed to overcome the next obstacle. Trail was created in late 1980s or early 1990s and was originally a far more challenging and mostly off camber singletrack.
