Basically, a freeride spot near highlands ranch, CO, some massive drops, and huge berms, a good place to work on some big skills, I build trails hear quite often, and just finished about a 4 foot drop off.

Access Info

Go to Northridge Recreation Center/ Park, go to the back parking lot and follow the paved path down along the baseball fields, keep left on the trail until you see a bridge, cross that, keep left again until you drop down, that is the end of the snake run, climb back up the other side of the valley and keep riding up either till you see something you want to ride, or keep going to the top and hit the snake run.

 I went here Just the other day and some of these drops are massive! These get up to like rampage territory in a way, like 15 feet into a loose turn was one of them, absolutely mad! Worth bringing the DH bike if you have one
