Another fast and flowing singletrack descent in the Soquel Demo Forest.

Description

The ridge trail takes you to several descents, Braille being one of them. It's mainly smooth and fast singletrack, with 1-3' log drops as options off to the side. It can be super fast, and is entirely enclosed under the trees. Braille isn't quite as long as Sawpit, but it's equally as fun.

Best trail in Demo. Pay attention, the roots will sneak up on you. Lots of levels me choices. Would rather ride Braille and skip Flow 1.4mi

Because of all the drops and fun optional lines, Braille is one of my favorite trails. I know it's widely considered black diamond, but that is really dependent on how fast you go, and how many features you hit. If you take your time and skirt all the drops, anyone comfortable on a blue trail should be able to handle this descent, although it does take away from the fun factor. Nov 19, 2018
