Get ready to fly through the forest and over the ferns with this Black Diamond, downhill only trail which starts off with a large 3-4' drop off an old tree. You'll want to pedal hard off the start so you don't OTB (the drop is not "rollable"). Enjoy sweeping, sculpted berms and a trail with option lines to jump gaps or stick to carving the clay berms. This trail gets fast and is designed to allow you to carry your speed and lay into the large berms and air over the jumps. Bam-Ba-Lam exits at the bottom of Copperhead Road for an easy climb back up. A two-way blue trail will also join at this lower intersection but is not completed yet. Please do not ride closed trails.
Please only ride when dry
Do not walk up the trail!

Access Info

Drop into Bam-Ba-Lam from Copperhead Road. Descend down the east side from the main parking lot area off Whiskey Run Road onto Copperhead Road and continue all the way until the trail crosses a Logging Road. Copperhead Road continues along the tree line towards the right, while Bam-Ba-Lam cuts off left.

Disclaimer

Absolutely NO DOGS. No Walking. Downhill only!

       Probably my 2nd favorite trail. Super short and super fast. A few good doubles and a few good drops with some wonderful berms sprinkled in. Kudos to the trail builders.

       Super fun. Other than initial drop, all blue flow.
