Description

Continue from the short advanced segment, and you'll enter a stand of red pine on a ridge. This was a trail highlight for me. In the cities, we mostly have deciduous forests, so it's a treat to be in the pines. The sweet smell in the air, the gentle chorus of the needles in the wind. You may be tempted to look above or about rather than watch the trail, but beware of stumps hidden in the grass just off of the track. Hitting one of the those will cause an instant endo.

When I came, I brought a friend who lived down the road and never had been to the trail before. Out of all of the trails, he liked this one the best, I can see why. This section has great flow. The trail weaves about, and you can build up quite a bit of speed pumping.

On the return from the Pine Plantation, there is a nifty rock garden consisting of multiple rock overs. I spent some time playing in here as there were too many lines I couldn't just pick one. I ended up combining multiple rock overs together, which made for a challenging roller-coaster experience.
