Mountain Biking The Nationals Downhill Course

#2135 in the world
This is the top to bottom singletrack downhill run, and the main trail at sugar mountain. It is highly technical with tons of rocks, roots, drops, steep trail, and some jumps. Don't expect any smooth berms or big jumps though! The coolest feature is a big 25-30 foot tall rock/cliff that you ride down.
