       This is a seriously fun and flowy single track. Some nice bridges, couple technical rock sections and connects to a decent pump track. Good hour and a half long ride and good to have a dropper post Smile

       Seriously good fun. Like the previous comment, every turn has a berm and a dropper will make your day even more flowy. I want to buy the trail designers/builders a beer.

      Why is no one riding the Headwaters trail off this trail. It is very similar with some rocks. The leaves need to get packed and a little cleanup done but it is a great addition to the Warrior Creek loop.

       Was there today. Please be aware, lots of branches, and a couple trees down. Trail is covered with leaves and is wet underneath. The flow would be great if the leaves were removed.
