This trail is crazy steep Like a few seconds to the bottom steep! This is Texas's premier DH trail built by Team Trail Party and a ton of volunteers! Can't say enough to the amount of volunteer sweat and blood that went into this trail. If you're on a trail bike, watch your speed cause this trail is full on DH!

Access Info

From the top it is the second trail head on the right.

Watch your speed and check yourself before you wreck yourself.

       Steep, loose and fast. Rode this on my 150 mil trail bike and it was very challenging.
