Description

Feature-filled fun on a very bike optimized descent from the upper parking lot down to a mid-point of Tramway Trail, and then further yet to a finish lower down on Tramway. All features are rollable, but very much designed for big air at speed, so follow the signage directions to "pre-ride, re-ride, free-ride" before you go big on this trail.

In fact, the many jumps are well sculpted, and provide good training ground with the tabletops and step-up jump features. The larger double rollers require proper technique and real speed to hit the best sweet spot landing zones.

This trail is designed to be intermediate level and welcoming to a wide range of riders, but those new to bike park style trails may find it more challenging than a typical intermediate cross country style trail. If the features are too much, you can select to continue descending on the parallel, and much easier, Tramway Trail from the mid-point where the trails meet up at an intersection.

While most riders will climb Tramway Trail before descending this trail, you can also shuttle the trail between upper and lower parking lots if you have a couple cars.
