Trails were pretty dusty. Watch out for loose soil.

Oh so fresh. This is what it's all about right here. Bit of a climb in and out, but you'll leave with a goofy smile on your face. Mar 12, 2018

I Rode this on October 29, 2018. I went from the parking lot up sulphur Springs road and down the flow. I am 57 and consider myself a lower level intermediate rider. This ride was super fun for me. I did not go high on the banked turns and took it relatively slow and was still able to have a total blast. Although it says all levels I am not sure I would recommend this to a beginner. Once you have some decent handling skill I would highly recommend this ride. Oct 30, 2018
