      Probably AK's best shuttle / DH zone This is what mountain biking is supposed to be like. Steep, techy, rooty, rough. This zone features steeps, roots, rock rolls, gap jumps, rock drops, elevated platforms and skinnys.

      The shuttle road is gnarly. Bring your 4x4. If you ride the bottom of Main Vain, have a friend at the bottom to make sure there is no one shooting up the trail from the shooting range.
