    Saddle-Up is a machine made one-way down-slope flow trail with lots of bermed corners, rollers and low take-off angle jumps. It's good but not outstanding. The surface is "soft on hard" - stones and grit on a hard sub-surface so you get a floaty ride. It joins the last half mile of Lupine for a superb finish.

    One of the better, more aggressive flow/jump trails at Bald Mountain.

    Flow trail. Huge berms. High table tops. Longer than I expected which was nice. Like previous comment, lots of shale, but the whole mountain has a lot of it.

    Still new and not worn in, with more loose shale than it should have ... but it will get better,

    Good flow, over an amazing elevation drop. A couple of super-steep corners, but all gentle table tops (too gentle, likely).

    A great addition to the park.
