       Good trail. Lots of small-medium gap jumps. The trail is a bit soft so in some spots its hard to get all the speed that you need. What it really needs is a lot of riders to pack it down.

      There is one section that is poorly thought out. It's about 1/2 way down where some fallen trees are used. Do not jump this straight on. I did and ended up off my bike into a stump.

      The access is not obvious. You have to follow gap in the fence between the two antenna compounds. Straight up from the road. Then Follow the fence to your right and you'll see the cool metal Thorn Star sign.

       Going to start fixing that jump mulletator. Rerouting trail slightly from the landing of that jump so it is a straight on . Some hikers have taken it personally about the progression on that side of the hill and have been sabotaging the trail. Rerouting slightly might make them happier. Rode it today and is riding quite well, I understand what you mean about the jump. spent more time building it and now that I am riding it can work out the little kinks.

       Very nice trail, but it's still super soft which can make it a chore to ride.

       I love this trail. It’s got something for everyone. I did find it difficult to see some or the ride arounds for a couple of the jumps but that’s prob cuz I was going a little quick for a trail I don’t know that well.
