A superb downhill flow trail.

Nick Wilder

Overview

Description

A superb downhill flow trail. The trail quickly leaves the ski area for the woods to the west, where you swoop down berms and hundreds of woop-dee-doos for a few miles. You can't help but laugh out loud. Hit the dirt road, wipe the shit-eating grin off your face, and head down either Hank's Hideaway or Liondown (Upper) for more fun to the base area.

This is a new trail (2012) and is beautifully built. Trust the trail, look way ahead on the corners, and it flows perfectly.

Getting forecast...

Finally made it to Vail today hoping to ride Radio Flyer, but learned after i made it to the top that it is closed due to construction of a roller coaster on the same piece of land. Jul 1, 2015


I think you're referring to the pump-track, a feature built into Radio Flyer. Jul 31, 2015


Anyone know why Vail hasn't made a new trailhead for Radio Flyer? Seems like the contruction only interrupts the first 5-10% of the trail. It's just such a shame that they shut down one of the best downhill trails on the mountain. Jul 31, 2015
