One of Galbraith's premiere trails, Unemployment Line is a machine built intermediate/advanced jump trail.

Large park berms and over forty jumps make this an exhilarating ride. This trail features doubles, booters, and tables showcasing the dedication and passion that went into making Unemployment Line. Like any quintessential flow trail, Unemployment Line is scalable to different rider abilities.

For newer riders it provides a smooth flowy descent with few obstacles - most obstacles are rollable, but a general rule of thumb is if it doesn't look rollable, it probably isn't. The intermediate and advanced rider can push for speed and doubles while tying together sequences of jumps. The bottom third of Unemployment received a major rebuild in early 2015 — adding massive berms, rhythm sections and two gaps. Both gaps are optional, but heads up because they come at you in the turns.

The 'slayer drop' (qualifying feature) at the start of the trail is the only wood feature on Unemployment Line.
