Also known as Watermain trail. Start at the top, throw a pedal, let yourself coast. Pump the drainage ditches then bunny hop them once at speed. DONT TOUCH THE BRAKES!! Keep going until the final right corner at the bottom. Slide the bottom corner, don't fly into the bushes. Finish off with a forest grove lap

      Took me half an hour to get down due to the abundance of salmon berries.
