Description

While not nearly as fun as Hooters Too, it does have a fun upper third that's a good place to advance skills. With few turns, low use, and an alternate line of elevated stone-work at the bottom of the singletrack, it can make a great playground or school room. Sadly, the bottom two-thirds are a service road which does little else than go fast (and can save you if you need to go #2).

Short, loose, and really fun. Put on aggressive tires and run them tubeless, then you can fly down this. The narrow "clean" line between rocks is u…
