The trail starts with a wooden start ramp into a series of switchbacks, the gradient gets a little steeper with some fun turns before gradually traversing left along the mountain. Small drops into tight corners are quite common on the next little section before you head into the trees. Loads of fun to be had in here! A few line choices with varying wooden jumps of different sizes, tight techy, branchy/rooty sections which can catch you off guard when wet. Quite a bit of the trail is off camber so watch out for that also. A real good DH/AM trail; not too steep with some tech sections.
