Pretty good trail, some cool features. A few of the jumps are kind of awkward. Pretty flowy though, and it’s lots of fun to rip down.

Small dead tree down just before franks meets hustler. Can be Easily cut with a hand saw. Possibly with a multi tool saw but would probably be challenging

Most likely, as with Ray's, the jumps probably had nothing to do with it. Liability is a thing of the past......

I wish the builders had invested the time on trails or a new one higher up that would of survived. Now that they are gone, all the work is for naught. It is not like anyone didn't know all lower trails are condemned for construction anyway so it seems to me no one should be surprised.

People need to stop wrecking green bastard! me and friends just filled in breaking bumps and smoothed the trail out a few weeks ago and its already destroyed again from people slamming on there breaks and riding it in the wet. So don't complain if green bastards in bad shape. You can blame the teens that ride it when its pouring.

There’s like a solid wood “closed” sign permanently bolted at the entrance. Is this trail open?
[Reply]

trail-governor (Oct 15, 2020 at 7:50)
It’s not bolted and it’s usually covered up when the trail is obviously open. Due to the greedy nature of unskilled riders it usually gets closed during heavy rains. This is not a trail you ride during or after a storm.

This trail is actually called "the last trail" long ago locals named it and some hooligans came and put up a sign "GARBAGE" because the trail was rough. This trail is actually my favorite at Burke with some kick ass jumps through out, they have been recently fixed up.
