Rodney's Run is the first trail built at Boomerang farm. It is named after a young lad, Rodney Hawes, who passed away at the age of 12 while helping his father near the top of the hill. We found a plaque on our first dig day that his parents laid to his memory. It can be found next to the shuttle road near the top.
Rodneys features berms, step downs, jumps, bridges, a steep chute section (or for the brave there is a steep rock chute adjacent). There are 2 gap jumps, Aaron's Crack and a road gap jump. The track finishes at the common pick up spot.

       What a trail! In my opinion a perfect trail to start with for DH. Plenty of options A & B lines, just flat out fun!! Pick your way through or smash down, either way it pleases everyone!
