Big hits, wooden features and steep berms are littered all over this machine built trail. Hymenoptera (Order: winged insects) takes advantage of all the vertical it can in setting riders up for doubles and step downs. Hymenoptera is one directional only: down It’s sure to be a hit.

While Hymenoptera can be ridden as a blue, it has many optional black and double black choices. Scout if unsure. We have not signed anything except the entrance.

Hymenoptera returns the rider to the aluminum bridge at the upper end of CBT Mainline trail.

Access Info

Hymenoptera branches off the top of Hemiptera in the woods just 100m south of the communications tower. It’s signed.

      Trail status will be updated as they are assessed by the trail crew. Riding the trails before they are ready can result in long term damage. Thanks!
