Description

This is a great technical trail, with rock gardens, tight turns, and a number of logs with ramps to ride on. Exceptionally tight switchbacks around the midpoint. The north end has some nice cruising with tight turns among the pines. Most difficult sections have easier bypasses.

As of March 2014, additional two-way (easy) and more advanced one-way sections are being constructed. Signage is being installed to indicate skill ratings. A flow trail extension that connects to Blue Ribbon is being planned. Contact FOO for work dates and join us!
