The track is approximately 360 long with 5 corners 2 of which burmed, 1 a flat bank, and 2 flat. The track has steps, drops, pump bumps table tops, a gnarly rock garden and a do or die pro-line (See track stats).

Will sums up this track well.

The number one priority for me when designing/ building the track was to ensure that it races well with all four riders. I believe that 4x racing is at its best when the riders make the action. And hopefully the new track at South West Extreme will provide great racing for both the riders and spectators.
