It is rather easy, although there are some parts that you may need to push or pedal up a hill, especially when reaching the section, called The Staircase. This trail has numerous jumps. Next trail is Bone – crusher or Sand Flats or 10 – Mile. The trail is insanely technical. The bigger part of the trail is made of sandy rocks, bigger than your front wheel. First and last parts of the trail are like Bunny Flats.

Next trail is 8 Mile. It is an intermediate trail. Next trail is 4 Mile. It is a tight, jumpy single-track, short but sweet and favorite by less experienced riders. Next is Cliffhanger. It was finished in 2008 and has the perfect balance of flow and technicality.

Next trail is The Tunnel Trails. It is a flow trail with countless single-tracks. Last but not least is Washout. It is the most awesome technical trail you will find on the mountain. On this trail the gnarl-ness is flowing and the rocks are slick.
