This trail is a great technical downhill ride. You will want to shuttle this one. There are many downed trees that have been retro-fitted into jumps (hence the name Stump Jumper). There are mandatory gaps throughout the trail. Several have a ride around option. One will launch you over a creek, so be sure to carry enough speed. Casing that one is no fun. Cattle graze openly in this area so look out for fresh droppings. Sometimes they hang out on the trail as well so be aware.

Official name is Sheepherder 099
