Rastaman is rowdy, fast, sometimes technical descent featuring steep natural rock roll-downs, bridges over small canyons, and short, punchy climbs. Expect plenty of roots and rocks, with a final steep climb to get you back to the main double track. This trail is best paired with Burning Spear for an all-time Perry Hill classic.
