This trail has 95% single track. On 5' drop and a 8' gap off a jump. there is easy ways around. Coarse takes around 6 min to 10 min to ride but its well worth it.

Summary:
stay in the middle, corners are sharp and unpredictable when you first start out. try to stay
loose, very bumpy....lots of roots, rocks, ect. one
section has a little up hill, the rest is down.
jumps are fun, but you need tons of speed to carry
through, recommend to go around first few times.
ride up sucks, but to go down you must go up, so stop
whining, higher that seat and ride!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and hey, i'm racing this course on my hardtail.

Recommended Route:
down,
