Some fun rock drops but has so much potential for more flow and more features! If I lived in the area I would definitely come out for dig days to build some more ladders and rock rolls.

Fun tech features the first half. Second half is a boring meandering xc track. Probably my favorite trail in this area though. Would be awesome if more fun rock rolls and bridges were added.

I've ridden at Big Bear Lake twice while visiting family in the area. My Mojo was not feeling the Voo Doo Rocks.

2 stars because I think the Race Loop and Crack Trail are much more fun for someone visiting the area and wondering what to ride.

I've ridden at Big Bear Lake twice while visiting family in the area. The Jump Trail is fun, but I preferred Crack Trail and the Race Loop.

4 stars because I think there are better trails at Big Bear Lake.

Yeah. This trail is definitely awesome. There’s so many big rock formations you get to ride over. And some of those drops are real. 3 4 and 5 feet.

This is one of the prettiest trails. Also it’s got a ton of cool natural features. It’s got even more if you’re willing to go off the trail a little bit.
