Side view of 2nd bridge and 3rd bridge below with wide, steep berm between the two. Both cross the same ravine.

Below the two bridges, the trail becomes more gravelly over exposed red clay, because of frequent city water runoff. Avoid after a storm.

After the s-turn berms, there is a roller and then a double jump before you merge with the main, multi-use trail (see bench in background). Check your speed.

There's a few tricky rock gardens and exposed roots on this trail. Best to keep your momentum and not touch the brakes when wet.

This is the second of 3 bridges, at a somewhat low point in the ravine just past the rock garden. Best to maintain speed to get up the steep roots between the trees on the other side.

First time riding Crater/Humpular! Fun mix of technical and flow. A bit sketchy in places, but loads of fun! 3mi
