Infamous Cease and Desist Gets a Facelift, Just in Time for the Holidays

Progressive Trail Design Trailhead in Bentonville, Arkansas

Cease and Desist remains one of the most infamous trails at Coler Preserve. Beginning with an exhilarating drop in at The Hub, the .07 mile trail showcases massive features, drops, berms, and unparalleled flow for the expert mountain biker. With the holidays in full swing, Progressive Trail Design is unwrapping fresh, flowy improvements to the entire Cease and Desist line. Expect to hit freshly packed dirt Mid-December, just in time for that winter riding weather.

Merry Christmas, Shredders!!

Starting at The Hub, improved table tops, rollers, and berms send riders flying higher, while keeping them contained within the trail even at high speeds. Improvements to berm-to-berm transfers give expert riders the opportunity to make the most out of their air, while preventing them from flying highside while cornering.


“In order to carry a faster pace down the line, we had to change the bones here. We’ve created a more dynamic line by changing the pits between the jumps, adding rollers to pump, and changing the grades on the lip approach. And those lips! Think Excite Bike from Nintendo.”
