    Known as 'Beast' to the locals, this trail will take a bite out of the unfocused on the downhill. Super Challenging climb when riding up from the bottom too.

    My favorite trail at Pandapas Pond/Poverty Creek! A very fast and steep trail that starts with some switchbacks, and then gets into a long, very fast straightaway before getting into a very tight technical section with tons of rocks and roots. Ends with with a creek crossing, though you can walk across on the rocks
