Super fast flow trail built by none other than Nico Vink. The top section was finished for the summer 2017. Massive berms that will have you bottoming out your suspension and your tires!! Huge jumps with a bunch of little hidden features for the pro riders out there that want to go even bigger!!!

       This trail has been renamed "Vink Line" after being redone in Autumn 2016. It is no longer a Blue level flow trail but a Red level flow trail.
