    Since I love the place, and the videos I ran across seemed either too edited or were missing obstacles, I decided to record the trails. This is literally for reference only, just so you can see what the trails look like (kinda like the Sycamore videos I do). No music or editing. Maybe a comment I say out loud if I get excited or do something dumb :D

    For starters, the current Neverland Jumpline (as of this weekend). It was recently modified to reduce the speeds at the bottom to be safer. A few people got hurt going too fast.

    Evergreen, with all of the optional features. I hope they add more features to this trail, there is room. I love how they made it two trails in one.

    Nice. I like the added features on that trail.

    I thought that Evergreen was my favorite trail there. Then I do a high speed Comet run, and I remember that is my favorite. Then I hook up with the local fast guys and have a few runs down Jumpline as a group, and it is my favorite, and...

    Ugh. Love that place.

    High speed run on Comet. Funny thing was, I forgot to record my first high speed run, so I went back up and took another pass. Only, I dialed it back a notch. My second pass was faster! This put my in the top 10.:

    I rode there yesterday with Mrs. Watson and none of my runs looked like that. The trails must have been defective the day I was there...:whistling:

    Comet looks like a ton of fun. I recognized the bottom of it - the bridge, the climb and the little skills park. That's where my daughter and I rode a few weeks ago.
    Nice run, and thanks again for posting all of these videos. :thumbsup:

    Your runs can look like that if you turn your brain off and go full stupid.

    I recommend against it.

    I love this place. I have an annual pass, I can show you around any time!

    It is a full on enduro style trail. Barely maintained. It is out of reach of all the water tanks and everything so it gets the least attention. I love it because it is raw.

    Here is Comet at a more sane speed, hitting all but one feature (feature might not even be visible):
