Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
The Kirkwood Bike Park is home to 12 different downhill trails, and the run mapped here serves as the primary black-diamond descent down the bike park.
This run drops down Vista, and then funnels into the blue Lower Corral trail to finish the descent.
Tacking on Upper Corral at the bottom of Vista provides a more technical, but less steep finish to the descent.
