First of five sections of Banzai Downhill, one of three trails that provide a top-to-bottom descent of the system. Starts with a wood roll-in to a catch berm, then a hard left-hander into a series of three tabletop jumps. From there there are tabletops, jumps, and wall rides that lead into an extended sinuous bridge above the forest floor.

All features can be rolled and most have ride-arounds (some of the tabletops do not, for example). First-time riders especially should scout all wooden and dirt features before attempting them. Individual riders can apply varying degrees of speed and select increasingly challenging lines, which may result in an experience that can be viewed from beginner up to intermediate and advanced.

Access Info

Access the top of this trail right at the summit. The bottom of this trail exits on the road, directly across from the start of Banzai Downhill 2.
