Singletrack trail that starts narrow and winding with some roots and very short uphills to negotiate. As it descends it opens up into a series of hand-built berms with a few small rollers and kickers. Midway it comes out onto a landing and then resumes into a faster and wider trail with rollers, doubles, berms, and hip jumps.

Access Info

Access the top from a short descent down Bailout-Highballer Tie Rd (BLM 14-7-35), with the trail entrance at a landing with a picnic table. The bottom of the trail exits at Dutchman-Springboard Tie Rd (BLM 14-7-36). Note that this trail is downhill-only.

      The dirt is fantastic after the rain has soaked in. Some root areas are rougher

       Upper is pretty rooty and rough then transitions into bermy section. Lower is all about jumps. Rollers, doubles, berms.
