Ride two of the steepest and techiest trails on the Bluff in one go. Ride Nervous Shakedown via All Screwed Up, Meanstreak, A Trail With No Name. After surviving your Shakedown, exit via a bumpy Back in Black. Hook into a Longway climb, all the way to the top of the Bluff. Hang a left onto Broken Axe, and traverse over to Skitzo. Hang onto the handlebars, she can be steep at times! Ride back to the parking lot using an old road along the bottom of the Bluff. Yeehaw.

      Trails are very muddy, partially snow covered. If you find yourself riding around more puddles than dirt please consider packing it in, cleaning your bike and getting ready for ski season! reporter
