Great flowy trail with a mix of berms and table tops. There is a drop about half way down with a bypass, it can be a little hard to see if its overgrown, everything else on the trail is rollable. Probably more of a grade 3 or 4 because of the drop

Splits off to the left of Tsunami part of the way down
