This is challenging! If you aren’t comfortable on most black runs, then take this trail slow until you know what’s coming. Lots of very slick, angled, roots. Super fun though, would highly recommend!

A good intro to north slope black trails. Probably the most manageable black trail up here thanks to a few alternate line choices. Rocky, rooty , woody, what else do you need?

Trail Scoby
SLIPPERY WHEN WET! All year round you want to be on a proper DH bike to really ride this. In the winter this rides like a double black. You better be a proper ripper if you expect to stay on your bike all the way down. Lower section is super fun on all bikes and rides like a blue trail.

Trail Scoby
This trail has changed it it 03-28-21 and it it a different trail the second jump after the first chute and berm it's about 2 feet taller and not a table top its like a step up to a flat lading or into a berm. The secondary chute after you cross the road is a legit chuck fest and the trail has more trenches and better flow now then 2 years ago. The drops before the big drop are smaller and packed in better for the fist timers that's will be good news. In all this is for realy my favorite trail in WA it's amazing in the shape its in. With the right bike and the right conditions it's amazing but this trail is no joke when wet it's a coin flip if you won't crash

Be very careful on this road! Right now there is a massive speed bump right at the entrance. The bottom of my civic scraped the speed bump. This road is great for shuttling but don't get too close to the edge as you can fall off. Multiple people have. Also in the summer, quads, dirt bikes, and other motorized vehicles drive too fast on this road.

Trail Scoby
Amazing trail, although this is my first time here and it rained a lot last week.

It was in phenomenal shape and is one of the best built trails I’ve ever ridden. No clue what other commenters are complaining about. There’s some really steep spots but it’s a freaking downhill trail, what did you expect? No ruts, berms were rippin, lots of medium doubles. Just a fantastic trail.

It's pretty steep in some places. A really good place for intermediate riders to hone in technical skills. Some flowy features but more just a classic descent with roots and step terrain. Very fun quick loop!
