    Coos County Forest

This flow style downhill trail dips and dives through the forest with ridable back-slopes, small berms, and optional jumps from the rollers if you carry enough speed. This trail is rated BLUE SQUARE for speed, fast corners, and tight lines. THIS IS A DOWNHILL ONLY TRAIL from the Hollerback intersection! The trail ends at an access road which you can take back up to the top of Sour Mash and loop it again. For a longer downhill centered ride after climbing back up the Access Road, continue all the way down Hollerback, Well Shot, Dirty Dishes and Stay Tuned. You won't be disappointed... if you have a vehicle waiting for you at the bottom.

Access Info

Climb Hollerback all the way to the top. It will intersect with the beginning of Sour Mash. Open your suspension, rev up your gears and drop into the left.
