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.
