Idk why this doesn't get more love, but it's a phenomenal downhill run littered with natural jumps and drops with tight, yet fast action. Get on it!

All downhill and fast and easy even for an old guy like me. Definitely a blue that most could handle.

While everyone's favorite trail in DuPont is Ridgeline, dont sleep on Turkey Knob either! Turkey Knob into Grassy Creek offers another awesome descent.

Ditto on the comment. I feel like taking a picture on the rambler is a bit of a DuPont rite of passage. Get your picture.

Thanks to those who did some recent erosion control on this trail. Rides great, even uphill. View at the end of the airstrip is breathtaking.

These pictures of big jumps are of the wrong trail. These are pictures of Hilltop Bike Park.

After a short climb you go into a fast chunky downhill. Just watch are line as you have to slice between two boulders at the end.

Fun moderate decent heading clockwise, steep climb out but all rideable. It’s worth the ride out on turkey knob

Some chunky, loose spots, serious roots. Other than that...Airstrip is a “first class” downhill experience.
