The trail includes a good variety of steep uphills and downhills with plenty of sand, rocks, logs, and roots to get in the way. Mastery of this trail would require great technique skills and endurance. For the inexperienced, you can push your bike up some hills, carefully walk down others, take breaks, and allow more experienced riders to pass.

      Yankee is in great shape, leafs are either cleared or packed down and tacky. Sand is firm. Go forth and shred.

      Lots of leaves on the trail and a couple of slick spots on the warm-up loop. Sand has firmed up as it does when we get rain.

       Awesome trail. Didn't do the whole thing but the two small loops I did we're fantastic. Some great smooth berms and some more technical root and rock sections. Very flowy. Would be great for a hard tail.

      Oh and decent amount of sand so watch out for that.
