As one of the most popular trails in the Bike Park, this old school single track really winds its way through the forest featuring plenty of wooden features all “low to the ground” to take on. But don’t worry if you aren’t ready to take on every feature you can take the easy trail around them.

This beginner yet challenging green trail intertwines sections of intermediate trail for those wanting more of a challenge. Test your skills on the beginner berms, small jumps, log rides and rollers or take it easy and follow the green trail all the way down to the lift.
