Very serious stunts on this trail: rock drops, cliff drops, monster gap jumps and more. You need to be on your game on this trail. If this is not your thing; you're not armoured up, or you don't have a DH bike; you'll likely be coming out on a spineboard.

Access Info

Either hit it from coming down Al Matador, or ride (or drive) up the Shuttle Road until you get to the gravel pit. Dopamine entrance is on the right of the pit, as you face the mountain above you.
