Backspacer stretches from the prayer flags down to where Deadwood and Treadstone join together. It is fun as a quick downhill with some bermed turns, small jumps, and a drop into the wash in the valley below.

Access Info

Located just southwest of the trail flags. Backspacer splits off of the NIrvana trail and heads south where it meets up with the Treadstone trail at the end of the Deadwood trail.

       The wooden drop is gone, if you’re wanting anything remotely fun go over to 220 and Juniper.
