Jake The Snake is an old school freeride trail. Some of the wood is no longer rideable but the dirt is still amazing. Worth the extra bit of climbing.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

      All features decommissioned. Without them this is a featureless trail that mostly follows old logging roads.

      Top portion of trail has some very overgrown parts with lots of loose rocks. Looks like one of the wood skinny stunts has a new entrance ramp....

      Very loose and eroded, most stunts decommissioned. Doesn't look like it gets ridden very much.
