Description

From the road, Half Nelson drops in past a duo of kiosks to enter into a world of fun. The upper half is characterized by tighter berms, deep pumps, and plenty of wood bridges as it winds through a young forest. A few of the turns come up to the edge of a ravine, but you'd have to wildly overcook the berm to have any issues.

As the trail transitions into the second half, the flow picks up as the turns loosen up. The deep pumps continue but they become delightfully more playful. The bridge crossing for Angry Midget quickly rushes past overhead, while just ahead, the end of Full Nelson feeds onto the trail.

The pumps and berms keep stretching on with a few table tops thrown in for good measure. Everything is rollable, but more advanced riders will be able to reach for longer jumps and doubles. All too soon, this 1.5-mile playground wraps up by feeding onto the Ring Creek North FSR just above the second parking area.
