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

      The rocks are covered in enough dust that they offer very little in the way of grip. I’d suggest in this state that the trail becomes more...

      Perfect grip after the rain. Even with some dusty corners under trees. Running smooth.

       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.
