High Point

Full suspension bikes required for the gaps and drops.

Make sure your bike is dialed in, your suspension set up, and your brakes are working. This route laps all the blacks and the 1 dbl black at Whiskey Run. Complete this route as many times as your pedally little legs can carry you. Or cheat and run it as a shuttle ;-) This route is not for the faint of skills, there are gaps, jumps, and high speed corners. Braaap.

Pretty overgrown. There is one sizable step up but needs some work.

Love this trail! Great riding surface, fast, flowy, with options for a few small drops to make it interesting. My current favorite out of the many many great trails at Whiskey Run.

Once again....trails are rated for the local area. When comparing against industry standards it fits the bill.

We aren't claiming it's super advanced for expert riders. Lowest common denominators. So..congrats for "being that guy."

Appreciate your input, but we are going by IMBA suggested standards and what makes sense for our area. Thanks for feedback.

Great mid size jump line. Very dry at the moment, could use a little love once building season arrives.

Probably my 2nd favorite trail. Super short and super fast. A few good doubles and a few good drops with some wonderful berms sprinkled in. Kudos to the trail builders.

Great little connector to climb out of the upper section. Makes lapping the top trails a breeze.

Brilliant trail, slightly less difficult than Loamwrecker, but just as fun. Some super fast sections. Tons of flow and side hits. Watch out as it gets crazy dark in here!

Great trail! Beautiful view at the top and on the descent. A couple drops, and a really fast step up. Nothing too crazy, but definitely a blast. Wish it was easier to get back to the top!

While I respect the work the trail builders did, this trail is NOT a double black diamond / red trail. This trail is just as the description says and is fun. All the drops were ridable. This trail is for advanced riders.

A fair assessment for most capable riders, but our trails are definitely rated on a pretty family friendly scale ( for example, gnomewrecker would probably be an intermediate in most cases).

Considering the initial exposure, our distance to trailheads, easy road access and the consistent Coos County newby with no helmets or skills, we felt the rating was justified.

Appreciate the feedback and hope you had a good time Wink
