Trail Description
About this trail
Great ride in any direction but counter clockwise as a connection with Skinny and Great wall would be my suggestion. At ~5.8 miles, you better not skip this trail. All the typical phrases that you'd think of for the F.A.T.S. trails apply to this one. Along with Skinny, it's a 12 mile pump track that feels like you could probably ride even if you had no drivetrain!! You'll know why they call this one the Brown WAVE very shortly into the loop. Watch out for the groups of rollers or you'll end up riding on your front wheel only. You have to ride a short section of Skinny to access the Brown Wave but that loop won't leave you disappointed either. Yet another trail that is NOT to be missed.

Review: Came back and rode brown wave this time. Connector part of skinny wasn't bad mostly flat with some parts that helped you pick up speed. Rode clockwise once I got to brown wave. Didn't pedal a lot of the track just worked the pumptrack. Keep 2 fingers on both brakes the corners come up fast and a few of them have trees right beside the trail

Review: Great Trail, drove from FL to ride. Well worth the drive time (7hrs). Trails are well maintained and marked. Going downhill is Great, go Up not so much.

Review: This trail is very fast with lots of whoop-die-dos. You have to ride another trail to get to is it. The other trail (name I forget) is flowy as well.

Review: Fun and more fun! Rode counter-clockwise this past Saturday after GW and Skinny.

This was my favorite trail of the three as I absolutely loved the flow and the different opportunities to jump. As someone else suggested, know your landing areas as the trees don't move. And the flow is so good that you need to keep speed in check as the whoop sections (some serious sections) come at you fast.

As with all FATS trails, well marked, well maintained and an absolute blast to ride. I would suggest that BW is a bit more difficult than Skinny but not as difficult as Great Wall.

Review: Great trail, very clean and well taken care of. The only problem is there is not a set direction to ride so you end up having to pull off the trail to let people by.

Review: Such a great trail. Fast, flowy, and smooth. Plenty of opportunity for air off of the rollers. Just don't get in over you head.

Review: Traveled from Maryland for the week to ride these trails. Well maintained and thought out trail system. Wear glasses as the saved my eyes many times in the pine forest areas. Not very technical and no dabs for me except at intersections. No water crossings and when I was there dry conditions with pine needles comforting my ride. Rode clockwise.
