Overwatch is an amazing long technical downhill with incredible views. Towards the bottom it can get really rocky. At the bottom you can branch right to the short trail "Cracked Cassette" for a 6 to 10 foot drop depending on how fast you take it.

Access Info

Follow OHV-0 and climb Brutality, or continue up OHV-0, take a left at the intersection, and skip the ridge portion of Overwatch.

Disclaimer

If using Brutality to access Overwatch, watch out for rattlesnakes!

       Fun trail. You may want to access the trail from the OHV road rather than hike up Brutality, but you would lose some of the ridge ride which is fun. The trail down is long, super chunky, a couple of rock step ups, a couple of rock gardens and did I mention there are some rocks! A very fun technical trail.

       Last time I rode this trail I got my rear tire (exo casing) slashed by a rock. I'm now switching to DH casing for this place. Also, the off camber section right after the entrance to Elevator Shaft is getting more chewed up by dirt bikers going up which is making it a bit more technical/gnarly.
