Great fun. Several slabs and different options up top, while the lower portion has been reworked with berms, jumps and optional drops. A step up in difficulty from Overnight Sensation, but well worth it, as I feel its the better trail. Check it out

Amazing how fast the dirt turns to dust in spring time in Pemby. Dry fast and a bit rowdy

 This trail was scouted and built by Jesse Murphy in 2009. His reason for building Rusty was that after shuttling Gravitron there was only Overnight Sensation to ride, which in his opinion, was Garbage.
