Riding the "Bluff Bridge" along the trail near Hwy 71.  A great feat of trail engineering!

Bridge over the Lake Ann Spillway Waterfall.  It's a "must see" on your Back 40 ride!

Small rock drop near the Bluffs SE of Lake Ann.  Get some speed up, because there's a rock on the landing to wreck rims!

Highlight video of Segment 3. This doesn't capture a lot of the scenery due to the scaled down view, but this is a very scenic part of the trail system, and the waterfall spillway bridge is a must see!

This is a video featuring myself and local shredder Charles Williams highlighting some of the more interesting features on the Flo Ride descent trail. Enjoy the janky hucks and sarcastic banter!
