Rockfall is the most challenging trail on the mountain. Designed and hand-built with assistance from local professional riders, Rockfall steeply descends along a route near the Pine Marten lift line. It begins with numerous drops and tight turns on a field of lava rock then transitions to dirt in the lowest section. Rockfall is an extremely difficult trail.

Access Info

Access from the top of the Pine Marten chairlift.

      With most of the Park open I anticipate this to be one of the last ones open based on what I can see from the lift ride up. Multiple sections with...

       It's kind of a bummer that they have written the trail description in present tense, when this trail is not near completion yet.

      You can see parts of this trail being built as you go up the lift, and it looks like it will be epic once they finish it. They have flagged a line right down this one spine of gnarly lava rock, should be some good downhill tech. It also looks like they might be planning a massive step up close to the bottom of the trail (on the right side of the lift as you ride up).

      Hope they finish soon.

       This trail is super sick. Not too technical but challenging and fun to find flow through the chunk which makes it fun. More of this mt bachelor
