Description

This newly opened trail fits nicely into its surroundings, utilizing the natural contours of the land. Without much elevation change, it flows great and gets especially fun when the grade does point you slightly downhill. It stays mainly under and around the pine trees and in many places zips you in between two adjacent trees. There is little to no tech involved here, just mostly smooth sailing trail.

This is a perfect advanced beginner trail. Lots of shade, some technical aspects, but nothing crazy, several float parts and very pretty.
