Description

This trail begins with a 4-ft.-high skinny qualifier and then drops into some halfpipe turns. After crossing an 8-ft.-high wooden bridge, the trail ascends across another skinny and into some punchy climbs. A 90-degree turn left yields a surprise 25-ft. drop into a big pump. On the other side ,the trail again turns 90-degrees left, and riders deal with a few rocks before entering into a series of climbs and descents.

There's an expert wooden drop with an alternative path around. At this point, riders encounter a challenging, steep climb, a winding descent with a jump, and another climb. After the trail, turn right and there's a steep descent banking to the right and with a wooden bridge at the bottom.

The next climbs and descents are best negotiated by keeping up momentum. After a small, hilly rock garden the trail climbs leftward, and then there is a relieving set of descending rollers. Riders should keep momentum when the trail bottoms out so they fly across a rock jump situated on a small hill where the trail again ascends.

After a short climb, riders turn left and follow singletrack downhill on a former road. After crossing a bridge often referred to as the "Beaver Dam Bridge" the trail abruptly turn right, and the singletrack negotiates narrow ridges between a paradise of small lakes, one of the prettiest parts of the park, and follows a long, primarily uphill ridge to end at the East Lake Trail.

Tougher than expected. Would be great on an enduro bike.
