Amazing, machine-built trail that is almost artistic in its use of rocks.

Description

Best ridden clockwise, but would be fun counterclockwise going downhill. This is an amazing, new trail that utilizes the rocks present in amazing ways. The rocks are rideable, so it would classify as intermediate-difficult, but for riders with less rock experience, it can be intimidating. There are whole stretches and turns that are nothing but rock, and that is OK... no better than OK, it is amazing and great! Be on the lookout for multiple A-line goodies! Enjoy, trust the bike, and let it roll through the beautifully manicured rocks!
