So good. This trail needs to be on the list of rides you compile in the area.

Though the land it crosses isn't the most scenic (clearings from a timber sale), the new-school trailbuilding techniques that built this trail have left two miles of flow that include bermed turns, rollers, and a variety of jumps.

Options, Options. To go DOWN this, as described above, start at the Tower Trail on Narrowback Ridge. Tower can be accessed via. 536D to the east, or Festival Trail or Narrowback Trail to the north. Tillman West is also an easy way to get UP on the ridge if you want to piece these trails together in a different way.
