aMTB 3 Rating: Major obstacles exist. You will not be able to ride this solo. Support rider needed.

The trail runs in and out of a wash. When its in the wash its wide open and fine. When it runs up out of the wash it gets narrow and off-camber. Some of these sections can be avoided by just staying in the wash, but adaptive riders will require support in several spots until some work can be done. Gate at trailhead is not accessible.

       I don't know who declared this to be "Jay's wash". It was dubbed Rattlesnake when we built it, and that's still the real name as far as I'm concerned.
      Great connector trail or alternative to Stucki, watch the two way traffic when it's busy. there are lot's of fast, blind corners.

       It is called Jay's Wash by locals in honor of Jay Bartlett who has been riding it for 25 years and continues to ride and help maintain it. Kind of like how we call the adjacent trail the Green Valley Loop Smile

       I'm a local, I don't know Jay, and I've never heard it called "jays wash" by anyone at anytime. And if he told you he had been riding that trail for 25 years he would be stretching the truth by about 10 years.

       This is the easiest blue trail I have ever done. Great for taking your kiddos on a ride. Consistent low angle and no rear technical features makes for a good uphill climb.

       As pointed out by Scorcho-unlimited. This trail has lots of blind corners. It should be designated as a one way route, preferably downhill.

       Jay works at Bicycles Unlimited. Stop by sometime and enjoy a story or two. He originally built this trail and is still the dude that maintains it ????
