R.I.P is a bi-directional trail starting at the Water Tanks above Homer Folks Job Corps campus, and ending at the north end of Strawberry Fields. It intersects Over Easy and Black Coffee and is a local favorite in both directions.

Starting at the top the first half is relatively flat, smooth and twisty with some rollers that offer a fun rhythm section. After the big log roll-over you begin the descent, which has more roots and rocks, with several off-camber turns. After the traverse under the cliff advanced riders have a couple opportunities for airtime with an optional step-down and a rock drop before the slight climb out to Strawberry Fields. Climbing RIP is a great challenge for those who like a bit of technical climb.
