Anyone want to get together to do some maintenance? Vegetation needs to be trimmed back on almost the entire thing, large very loose rocks need to be tossed, jumps broken and rutted out.
Very fun trail back in the day, it’s been over 10 years since I have ridden it, and Saturday I crashed 7 times going down it largely due to the above mentioned things.

Great trail, besides all of the dipshits that can’t read the signs indicating DH only! Lots of walkers on the bike trail… sad!

This trail is fun, like any trail there are some spots that need to be touched up some to improve the ride. It takes a few times to get the feeling and to know where pedal, where to pump and to cruise. Those complaining about the trail most likely aren’t good all around mountain bikers and we’re just expecting another down hill trail like bobsled. Watch some videos and learn how to absorb & pump rollers to create speed and flow better.

This trail misses the mark. The flow is just off and it’s a schizophrenic descent. Very easy to build speed into weirdly deep and tight corners. Soooo many whoopses. There are definitely some fun features but it alternated between between boring and terrifying.

Trail is sick, little rutted out at the top, so easy on the brakes, especially up top. This trail has something for everyone, from small doubles and tables to massive gaps you can work up to. Had a blast!

Not bad and good addition to this area. Some random bumps, rolls, and uphills that don’t flow that well but it’s a new trail will only get better with time. Couple rowdy parts at the bottom if you’re going quick.

Fun addition to the trail system. Rides really well when it’s tacky, kinda’ harsh when it’s dry (most of the time). I hope this thing lasts, seems like a gamble to build this style of trail in that type of soil, and traffic volume.

Too many jumps?? Every single thing can be rolled over, felt like a pump track honestly, snd the trail felt a little confused, if it’s a flow trail, a jump trail or some sort of pump trail on steroids, a little tough to keep speed up top. But a fun trail non the less, would ride much better with moisture in the dirt, so i will probably avoid this on dusty and dry days.

I wanted to like this trail more. It's not bad - I like the jumps/rollers and there are some nice corners, but other corners are a bit loose or off-camber and a bit sketchy (which may get worse if the dirt loosens up). I appreciate having another DH option though.

Not a bad trail. First half is a bit "pedally". The last portion is pretty fun as you come down off the hill.

Rode this trail for the first time today and it is in my top 10 non-lift trails.

Ridiculous, flowy berms, big drops, jumps made out of cars?? What more could you want out of a trail?

Can’t wait to come back here with a few friends and session the lower section.

Be careful out there, a rider informed me before o dropped in that there was a bunch of wasps around the creek bed. And he wasn’t wrong, there’s a huge swarm that you either need to bomb through or wear long sleeves for. Other than that what a great run.

If the top wasn't so washed out it'd be a great overall trail. Still gave it a 5 star though. Ready fun, high berms all the way down the gully.
