Short, flow trail that starts off of Barham Ridge. It is a relatively fast rolling trail with multiple berms. During the summer/dry it can be relatively loose. It is usually very good/fast after some moisture. It is typically ridden downhill from Barham Ridge to the small Valley in between Barharm Ridge and the 3 B's climb directly across. You can continue across to climb Bumblebee (which climbs to the middle of the B's), turn right to go up Coachwhip and back to Barham Ridge or left for a small connector to Mountain Goat. It is popular with bikes, however, can be busy with hikers, especially during cooler/busier days.

Access Info

Accessed from the top of Barham Ridge. The most popular way is to climb up Chutes Trail (New Chutes). There are two Chutes trail that follow roughly the same lines, however stay left to climb Chutes Trail. Old Chutes is downhill only. Take Roadrunner to the end, there is a info sign and a small, half-buried log ride. Head past the sign, cross the dry river bed area and stay to the lift to climb Chutes Trail.
