From the trail head on level 2 take the steep entry into the massive berm. Stay left of the DH line and head over a couple of small ramps that guarantee some air time if you're off the brakes here. A high speed run over a mini table top and small double heads into the flow section of super new berms which add huge flow to a mostly flat middle section. A few small jumps spice this section up further. The trail descends into more natural sandy terrain around a series of corners and straights before a long berm heads into rockier terrain with an optional step down drop for the brave. The trail regains its composure and thanks to some careful building has become faster than ever, with vegetation covered banked corners and optional drops and a jump or two. The quick and fun "Troll Bridge" section has been reopened. Gone is the bridge and its now a fun, fast, feature filled short cut to the final piece of flat out straight to the disused gravel quarry close to where the DH line currently finishes. Enjoy.
