Fun for Intermediates and Experts, Free Speech has confidence building features and great flow.

Overview

Description

Free Speech directly parallels Green World for a good portion of the trail and starts with three easy built wooden features. These are easily ridden and prove to be great confidence builders.

Shortly after Free Speech diverges from Green World, the trail dips into more wooded terrain. There you'll hit two successive wooden rollovers. It's easy to build speed here, so enjoy the whoops! The trail then rides over a wooden bridge which is also easily rollable.

From here on the trail is very fast as it negotiates flowing berms that lead into an intersection with Long Trail. Watch your speed here and be on the lookout for oncoming traffic. After bearing left at the intersection, you'll encounter a double. Be very careful here. This feature can either be jumped, or rolled. Don't hesitate on this feature!

The trail then leads into a fast, flowing finish with berms, tightly wooded singletrack, and one wooden rollover. Soon thereafter, the trail terminates at an intersection with the main doubletrack access road. From here there is access to Lower Long Trail, No Quarter, and Green World.
