Airstrip is a fun trail once you leave the actual airstrip and head into the woods. Multiple switchbacks take you down the side of the ridge at a fast pace until you reach the bottom.

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

       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.
