Trail shared by Rick Powelson

A fun intermediate jump trail that ends on Green World.

Description

Spicy Chicken is a fun, flowy, intermediate jump track and a good option for beginner jumpers. It features small table tops and rollers. If you're not skilled at jumping, all features are rollable, too. There's also a Rainbow Bridge (wood feature). It's much smaller than the one on No Quarter and is easily rollable. For newer riders, just maintain enough speed and you'll make it fine.

There's a nice area of consecutive small rollers near the end of the trail where you can practice pumping. There are no gap jumps and no gnarly features (rocks, roots, drops). The end of Spicy Chicken merges with Green World. Be on the lookout because you'll often find newer riders enjoying Green World and they're often busying paying attention to the trail or aren't aware that there's a merger. Err on the side of caution so everyone has a good day.

As you continue on Green World, you'll soon have the option to split off onto Double Jeopardy, Rainmaker, or a fire road to Five Points.

Fun new trail to practice jumps. Still pretty smooth for late in the season not much chatter.
