Description

Ride this fun, fast, and technical race segment from Alaskan Blvd to 3 mile loop road. The trail opens with four 3-4' rock drops. Most can be snuck on one side or the other if you're not feeling too frisky. You'll encounter a number of fun rock gardens, rooty sections, and tight turns. Towards the end of the trail, the nature changes to less technical but with several short rolling climbs as the trail crosses several creek beds.

There is now a new section off to the right about 1/3 of the way down Gene's (Flowkilla Trail)- choosing this option adds considerable difficulty to this route. If you are looking for bigger drops and tech, hit Flowkilla Trail !
