Third of six sections of Sickter Gnar, one of three trails that provide a top-to-bottom descent of the system. Starts immediately with an optional rock-armored drop off the main access road into a series of corners and small kickers. The end of the trail has a very small gap drop just before the access road that will eat your rear wheel if you don't carry speed. So, carry speed, pop, and don't try to roll it.

Access Info

Both top and bottom of this trail are along the main access road.

       I absolutely LOVE this trail! So does my son. I'm not sure why trailforks has it list as an intermediate blue square run when Black Rocks map lists it as a Black Diamond, which truly it is.

       You're right, it was blue according to BRMBA before they (correctly) updated the maps last year out in the forest.

      However, the community hadn't yet updated the maps on Trailforks. I'm submitting edits now. If you vote for them they'll have a better chance of being approved!
