Albatross may be the tamest of the steep side downhill trails but is still plenty rowdy. Multiple jumps, rock gardens, and steep chutes. Most definitely look before you leap. Super fun on both DH and AM bikes.

Access Info

       Don’t waste your time, unless you are gonna gamble with the huge blind jumps, it’s basically a straight rocky downhill to nowhere...

       Agree, waste of time and a chunky mess. Other trails in the areas like Boundaryline are much better. Skip this one.
