The Drops Sector consists of multiple trails, most of which stem off from a single access trail. This sector has many technical features, mostly made of large rocks, wooden ramps, as well jumps and drops.

Access Info

Take a right on the access trail, and head down the trail next to the boulder. On the trail, take the first right for a smooth but short trail that flows down the mountain. On the left, are the more technical sections. All of the trails in this sector come out on Fishing Creek Rd.
