The Wild Cherry starts out with some steep descents and a few drops and logs to navigate thrown in for variety. As you ride along you'll come across a semi log to ride across and drop off the end, this being the tamest stunt on the trail. Then comes a steep section with tight turns and no room for bailing. Near the end of this section you'll have the pleasure of riding down a rock face for about 8 feet, but be careful with this one, there is a tight turn and a short runoff. Next is a ride along a log with a 10 foot ladder ride down, this one was fun but challenging for me (limited skills as the boys would put it). Further down the trail is a combination level ladders and plank stunt. It's about 25 feet long and a ladder ride down the end of it. The toughest section of this stunt is the section of ladder that is at an angle to avoid having to cut down a tree. To finish off the trail is a steep section with a log to cross while descending. After this the trail levels off and finishes at an old access road.

The trail has been altered by the chainsaw gnomes. The man made structures are gone but the trail is still there.
