Trail Description
About this trail
a fast and fun fire trail descending in a zig zag down the mountain, there are several branching routes that connect more directly to other sections. some small water bars are scattered throughout the trail which make for good jumping. the surface can be loose rock and sandy in places so watch out. watch out for walkers and sight seers and be careful with your speed on the corners, some of them are rather large drops over the edge. The gates to this area at the top (and in some lower areas) are USUALLY open, but expect them to be closed or blocked if other events are on the mountain.
As an added bonus the team from the Newtons Nation Festival has cut a downhill track into the side of the mountain, this crosses the trail in several places so watch out for downhill riders, and if downhill riding yourself, watch out for other riders and walkers on the trail where you cross it.

Review: Great fun to ride down, you can get a lot of speed and there are some good water bars to jump off. there is also a downhill track running right down the middle if you feel game, its a steep one though. the only problem i have with this trail is that you have to come back up it, and its a tough one. also great views out over the landscape.
