“A flowing downhill track featuring varying trail conditions, small jumps and fast, loose berms.”— Brian Smith
The trail starts off flowing through a wooded landscape and features generally damper dirt than you'll expect to find in more exposed areas. Almost immediately, you'll find three or four small tabletop jumps that are easily cleared in the air with speed, or rolled with less speed. After passing the small tabletops, you'll come to two small doubles (jumps with a defined takeoff and landing, and no fill in between). These are small jumps that are again very easy to clear in the air, or to roll over with less speed.
Next, Shy Ann breaks out of the trees and onto what is a ski run during the winter. The dirt on this section of trail - and really the remainder of the trail - can be expected to be noticeably looser, rockier and drier than the wooded section of the trail. Advanced rider will really be able to let it rip here as the trail is wide open and features nicely banked corners. Be careful, however, as there are many loose rocks strewn about the trail and corners. Flow through close to ten berms past the half-pipe and arrive at the "Five-Points" intersection.
This is the end of Shy Ann. From Five-Points, you can access the main doubletrack access road, Free Speech, Green World, Long Trail, Pipe Cut and Rain Maker.
