Built and named after the Offspring song Hammerhead, playing on an AF rides iPod at the time this trail was built off the back of the quarry trail as a one way connector down the zones rock ledges to eventually join up to the main trail and turkey trails.

Lyrics on his mind at time:

“Through this doorway

What’s on the other side

Never knowing

Exactly what I’ll find”

Heavily modified and upgraded over the years Hammerhead has multiple skinnies, rock up and overs, a jump and would be rated difficult by most.

Noobs will probably know this one as Oil Drum since there is an oil drum on it.
