“A classic bike park style trail featuring berms, whoops and lots of speed.”— Brian Smith
The trail then breaks into a more sparsely wooded landscape where you can really go wide open if you are comfortable with the speed. All of the corners have nicely built berms and the trail is dry, loose and fast. The pitch is pretty mellow here so there are some long, fast straightaways. We experienced some pretty developed breaker bumps due to heavy use of the trail, but the conditions of the trail can be expected to vary throughout the season. Expect some loose, chatter inducing rocks along this more exposed section of trail.
The trail then re-enters the woods where you'll find buffed out, smooth singletrack featuring some of the best berms on the mountain. These high banked corners (probably close to 5 feet tall!) lead you through nearly 180 degree direction changes and are extremely fun to lean into and fly out of.
This trail will appeal to everyone from beginner riders all the way through to advanced downhill enthusiasts due to its fast and fun nature.
Finally, Long Trail merges with Free Speech and continues as Lower Long trail.
