One of the older trails in the area, Highway To Hell was once a wood based Freeride trail but the features all rotted away over the years. The trail was given a new lease of life during 2019 and 2020, and a different style. It is now largely dirt and rock based, but still with some jumps, drops and different line choices to test intermediate riders. Look before you leap

Note that the preferred line (and the one mapped here) for most takes you on to Hueso, a double black trail, so be prepared to be able to ride that trail, or the original very steep and rough chute at the end of Highway To Hell which is not being actively maintained.

Access Info

Climb up to the top of Hueso and turn left before the first slab.
