Easily one of the most fun and popular trails in Cuyuna The east trails around Yawkey Mine are basically a bike park. All of them are less than 2kms long and everything funnels back to your vehicle. Bobsled has the standard leg burning "pay the admission" then 7-8 massive 10' high x 20' wide hillside berms that line a small valley that funnels you back towards the start. Very well groomed, well maintained, and if you get really high on the walls your speed can get quite high. There's a shortcut option that allows you to forego the shale rock gardens that complete the circuit at the top of the trail. That being said, many less-experienced riders take the short cut and can mess up your flow if you're not aware while you're tearing around the berms!
