Summary:
Okay, this is one "trail" thats at wintergreen. Yes it's long and fast, but is nothing compared to the REAL DH/free ride trails they have. Loggers alley is a good end of the day run. You don't want to spend all day riding it when the good stuff is by the ski lift.

Summary:
It's funny to read some of the reviews below. Seems like a different trail some people are writting about. Here is the real deal: It is a downhill FIREROAD nothing more or less. I do mostly cross country style riding and found this trail to be easy (maybe a bit boring) at best. On a full blow DH rig go else where. Don't know if you would even feel the trail. Sure there are some rocks and strem crossing, but if you think this is hard you simply do not ride that much. Went there wanting to like it, left wondering if I was on the right trail (I was).

Recommended Route:
Wintergreen Bike Park - Follow the Bule signs and mile markers.

Summary:
This trail is highly overrated. It's an intermediate run at the best. Does not compare to Good ole Whitetail at all. Its basically a fire road with a few rocks and little hits. This ride is fun, but if you are a good downhiller, you will be disappointed. The busdriver is slow, talks too much and will drive you nuts on the way up.

Recommended Route:
Take the fire road to the bottom

Reviewed by: Will , from Atlanta

Summary:
I brought my own TI hardtail. The shop now rents K2 front and full susp cross country bikes. First, this should be rated an advanced trail, but since Wintergreen's other trails (which seemed new as of Summer 2001) are not really ridable, they call this intermediate. I'm glad I left my wife behind on this one. It would have taken me 6 months to get her back on the bike. The trail is very fun for advanced riders, who enjoy technical downhills. The trail does have about 200 yards of uphill. If I do this again, I will try to borrow or rent a full on down hill bike. Wintergreen also has a skate park for the truely crazy.

Recommended Route:
Follow map provided at rental shop. I think you are supposed to pay a usage fee for the shuttle bus.
