“Black Diamond section filled with roots, rocks, berms, and some wooden features.
— Vinnie Connors
This section dries much slower than other parts of the trail and may be closed when the rest of the trail is open.
This trail is Francis J Beatty's recently improved black diamond section. This section will test your skills to say the least. Lots of roots, tight trees, logs, skinnies, a few jumps, a 4 foot wooden ledge drop, and the best man-made feature in Charlotte, a ski jump kicker. Lots of airtime to be had here. This run is just a blast to ride.
