“A raw version of Ginormous with bigger turns and it's longer, meaning more fun for you.”— Craig Fowler
As the summary says, Father is a bigger version of Ginormous. You can expect large wall rides, sweeping turns, small step up hip jumps and plenty of fun.
In the lower section of trail things get narrower, the turns get sharper and the wall rides fade out. Father dumps you out on South Porcupine between Christmas Tree and Trough. BUT wait, there's more. In 2018, this trail was extended below South Porcupine, continuing down the gully with more walls, hips, and small jumps. Use caution as the trail intersects with the two way Christmas Tree before continuing all the way down to the 4 way intersection with Monte Carlo, the top of the Prince Creek Trail, and the downhill direction Lower Monte Carlo.
