Nice scenic double track trail with a couple of hip jumps and a couple gaps as well. There are some rocky sections but nothing crazy. Watch out for hikers.

The trail starts with an easy fire road climb. Then it's lots of roller coaster like sections and a few tight switchbacks. Fast and fun, but it's over quick.

Lots of jumps, drops, berms, and rocky sections to break up the flow. This seems to be a very common trail to do shuttle runs on, and I can see why! Best trail in the area if you ask me.

Post 2021 fire, this trail is still just fine thanks to the work of FATRAC et al. Burnt trees here and there and the tunnel rut is a bit deeper but all in all just the same ‘ol Culvert

Since the 2021 fire, the first half has been bulldozed. The left hip at the top still remains but it’s now officially double track for the first half.

Pretty fun and narrow. Can be worked into a loop by climbing Stagecoach, then riding some pavement down Foresthill Drive to Canyon Drive.

Still fenced off, the fence has fence been extended to further discourage access. Once through the fence the trail is filled with cut branches, and tree limbs. I’ve even been harassed when on trail. Sent an email to star park superintendent months ago; never heard anything in response.

Skip the climb (it's a fire road) and take the road to the top of the singletrack descent. It's a great trail.

You can, but to have to cross private property. The neighborhood residents said that riders have been using it for years, but the new owner has posted no trespassing signs.

This trail has it all. switchbacks, flow, drops, jumps, two up hills to get to it, banked turns, even a huge culvert you ride thru. The best trail in Auburn area.

Description says "very fast" that is a relative term. I guess you could say the first part of this trail is very fast but once you get to the rock garden, not so much I certainly don't ride it very fast. It is a great rock garden. Small rocks, big rocks, drops, narrow spots etc. See if you can ride without putting your foot down, I did and I'm 73 years old.
