Superberm, LYM and Swamp Donkey trails are some great flow trails to ride. These are trails that are on the lower section of the mountain.

Description

LYM: All wood and you spend all your time on wood feature that snakes through the trees and spits you out on the other side of the hill. There are some steep section on this wood feature trail but its one to check out. There is a fall hazard so check it out before you commit to riding it.

Superberm: Pretty obvious what this trail is about. Berms and more berms. It flows from top to bottom with some fun jumps.

Swamp Donkey: Nice long trail with a variety of stuff to keep you on the ball. Lots of flow and jumps that goes from hard rocky terrain to nice dirt flow. A great trail to bomb down.
