Beginner to intermediate level flow trail. Many rollers and berms, some tabletop jumps and some poppy short jumps at the bottom. Last two big jumps are intimidating lips but have ridearounds if you're not ready for them. Everything is rollable.

Access Info

Access the top of this trail from a short gravel spur that heads west and uphill from the main paved Carpenter Bypass Rd. Shares an entrance with Ode to Joy. Head to the right to enter Mama Tried, but not such a hard right that you wind up on the short access trail down to Silver Bullet.

      One spot of slick mud up top (just after 2nd berm if I recall). Standing water puddle at the very end. Other than that, it's tacky and riding great.

       A quick fun and flowy downhill section in one of my favorite trail systems in the area.

       Hit this today for my first solo trip to WY pass. Fun trail. Will session it again for next trip . Good place for a few lip lifts and small air. Just what I need after a few years off the bikes.
