Viking is an intermediate jump trail. This upper section has some fun little table tops and big berms that cut through the trees. There is a nice little sender right before some big berms and then it drops you out on the newly cut section of Verde. Then you follow Verde to a big intersection in a meadow and decide where you want to continue.
