Trail Trail 9 DH
Love this trail! Flow at the top half, technical on the bottom. Not too much moto chunk at the moment. It seems to have more solid rock on it than say 4-1. It does involve a hike-a-bike out to Mace Mill Rd, about 10 minutes of hiking and 10-15 of riding to get back to Mace Mill staging area. Totally worth it.

Someone put fake “no bikes” signs on the trail posts in a way that looks like the official forest service insignia.

Stupidly steep climb out from the creek. Not worth it to drop 9 IMO.
