This trail is rated as a blue square meaning more difficult. It starts with a huge drop in from the Figure 8 black diamond trail. Make sure to stay left after the drop in to stay on North Main. This trail has plenty of downhill so you can get some great speed. It is quite rooty so watch your pedals and calculate for the uphills.Show more
