Hand built trail from Bobcat down to Snagmore. This rough and very rooty trail can be ridden up or down. The descent can be fast and furious and needs the rider to stay focused. This trail has become significantly more rough since it was built in 2010.

Access Info

Access from the top is via Bobcat, from the bottom is Snagmore or Elbow.

      Trail is completely dry. Just a bit dusty for anyone but the leader in the train if you're ripping hard. Watch out for the cow and horse shit.

       Mama bear and cub seen by the switchbacks mid route. Non aggressive but right by the trail. Mama is big enough!

       Mama black bear and 2 cubs spotted about halfway down Snakes yesterday morning.
      They just kept moving downslope away from the trail.
