Throw the Goat starts you off going down some awesome fast single track (Just like Tommy’s 2 but a bit steeper) with some small jumps thrown in for good measure. But about halfway down the track changes it’s tune and gets techie and packed full of chutes, rocks and roots.

Access Info

Throw the Goats starts right below the chairlift at the top.
