Billy Epic is an excellent old-school descent off the Flank Trail. The trail features outstanding views and great technical riding over rocks and roots. As you descend, take a moment to think about bikers in the mid-90s riding this trail with 2 inches of front suspension (and steep head tubes)

Access Info

The trail is accessed by riding to the top of Alpine Way and continuing along the dirt road as per Rick's Roost. Continue past the descent for Cat Scratch Fever and climb all the way to the Flank Trail. Travel south along the Flank Trail for about 10 or 15 minutes to a clearing (Paraglider's launch). The trail head for Bilyl Epic is about 5 minutes past this spot and is signed.
