The Jay Bitch trail is Racker's most difficult, technically challenging trails - for experts only. Others will find the lengthy tight rock gardens and features unrideable and unenjoyable. For those who seek an extreme test of technical riding skills and equipment, you may enjoy this trail and the glory of occaionally cleaning it. There are no big stunts, just relentless, brutal rock gardens on tight singletrack on the south half of the trail. The trail is equally challenging and cleanable in either direction. Not recommended when wet due to the added difficulty of slippery rocks.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       This is brutal. If you are looking for a challenge this is it. I found large portions we hike a bike for me.
