“Choice intermediate/advanced machine built flow jump trail.”— Eric Ashley
Large park berms and over forty jumps make this an exhilarating ride. This trail features doubles, booters, and tables showcasing the dedication and passion that went into making Unemployment Line. Like any quintessential flow trail, Unemployment Line can be scalable to different rider abilities.
For newer riders it provides a smooth flowy descent with few obstacles - most obstacles are rollable, but a general rule of thumb is if it doesn't look rollable, it probably isn't. The intermediate and advanced rider can push for speed, doubles, and a few gaps while tying together sequences of jumps. The bottom third of Unemployment received a major rebuild in 2016 and 2017 that added massive berms, rhythm sections and three gaps. All three gaps are optional, but heads-up because they come at you in the turns.
The 'slayer drop' (qualifying feature) at the start of the trail is the only wood feature on Unemployment Line.
