New extension to the Goosebumps trails. No signage yet, spoke with local trail advocate and got trial name. This trail is a fun fast descent from the trail head, then turns into kind of a pump track and is traverses its way to the JEM intersection. I rode it both directions, but some of the downhill is on a narrow ledge, and it made passing difficult, as it appears to mostly be used for going down.

       This trail is most definitely NOT a downhill prefered trail. With the top of JEM being downhill only, this trail is the only single track route back to the Highway 59 parking area. In the future, it may actually be designated as uphill only. Please watch for climbers on your way down, they have the right of way.

       Riding this trail downhill from the parking lot is the best trail in the area for speed and jumps and such. Riding the jeep trail back up to the parking area is the most recommended way of getting back as there are a bit of blind corners on this trail. Hopefully one day this will be designated as a downhill only trail.

       That setting was default, must have missed it. I changed it to bidirectional

       Epic trail. Rode down JEM and up it and boy did I wish we descended it. Long descent with small optional jumps and tons of flow.

       I think dead ringer is a rad trail to ride down. Yes it is an uphill option to get back to the upper jem parking lot but there are two other uphill options. At the gravel road at the bottom of the JEM DH section you can cross the highway and access Gould trail which is an easier but longer uphill climb. Or you can access the jeep road called jem access or jem loop. I hope deadringer never becomes uphill only because it is really fun to rip down it

       I wished we had ridden down it instead of up only (which was great for sure). Jem is pretty tame for a down, so would recommend ride up Jem and down Dead Ringer.

       Great trail to ride downhill and then conect to JEM, super flowy and easy to carry speed and I would rate one of the most fun out there. A great option/alternative from all these MESA ride’s that you ended up getting an overdose of short and no flow bump rocks.
      I rode this as sunset ride after a great morning section at Show Me Your Money into Grafton. Thanks to my bro Mark for the shuttling.

       In Dec. Jan. Feb. these trails are often too wet before noon to ride due to the frost that forms overnight. The mud here holds really good size rocks that can damage your bike. Best to avoid.
