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.

       Only two or three really advanced sections/moves, but they lack ride-arounds. Intermediates may find themselves walking their bikes far more on Rasta Man than on Joe's or Disneyland, which have alternate routes around the big rolls.
