Description

It is clear a fair amount of work went into this trail. The trail generally has good flow and has lots of small bermed turns. The first few miles are fairly mellow with some man-made features (gap jumps, bridge, teeter) that you can take advantage of on the way down (they all have easy ride around options).

The second half has more climbing and there are some areas of loose rock that will probably continue to clean up with more use. The trail ends with a stiff climb that ends at the Connector Trail.

Many other trails in the area offer additional options for fun and distance.
