       It's a bi-direction line, so no berms on this one. #2 (build in progress) has lots of berms. Come out to trail work the next 3 Sundays, we hope to open it by Thanksgiving!

       What a fun, fast, flowy trail! Wish they added more rocks when they were building it though.

       That's just how that hillside is. Unusual for the Shed! Go ride RTP #3 which will connnect you with the middle of #1. There's rocks in there. #4 and #5 (not open yet) will have plenty of rock!

       Hey Joe, not sure what I'm missing but I'm not seeing RTP in the trail list? I thought the new trails were detailed here but can't see them now...
