An absolute blast for DH riders. Bring your big bike and pads, many low and long hits and turns galore. This trail is rough in sections with long and steep rock slabs lower down the mountain. Starts out slightly mellower at the very top of Bootleg FSR and gets progressively more difficult, steep and rocky as you descend. For an easier option take Atlas Shrugged from the top. Once you’re on this black trail, there aren’t many options to skip to another trail until lower down on the mountain.

Access Info

Take Bootleg FSR to the very last switchback on the mountain. Please use 4x4 and drive at a reasonable speed to save the road.

Disclaimer

This is an advanced trail that gets progressively more difficult as it descends. Pre-Ride, Re-Ride.

       Such a sick trail! Would probably call this double black though. Lots of steeps, drops, tight corners and loose rocky sections. If you like rowdy DH this is the trail to ride at bootleg
