Description
This is primarily a downhill trail, so get to the top by riding up Redneck Ridge (see the ride "Redneck Ridge to Pool and Ice Rink"), or take Bellyache Road for a much easier ascent.

The beginning follows an old dirt road for a few hundred yards before the beautifully constructed singletrack begins. This was completely rebuilt and rerouted in 2013, and is an enormous improvement over the unsustainable route that went by the same name before.

This is a downhill flow trail, with berms, S turns, small jumps, and tons of fun! There are sections that can go very fast, but there are some surprise sharp turns and occasional obstacles, so be careful when you can't see far ahead. One very steep part has been turned into a luge run - you might be tempted to climb back up and repeat a few times!

Lower down, the last mile bobs up and down rollers a bit, but the fun continues with small jumps until you end at... you guessed it... the pool and ice rink.
