Popular with downhillers, Trail 9 is known as Ricochet as it is currently the fastest and largest descent on the hill. Originally designed as a descending trail featuring massive berms, jumps and multiple technical features, it will eventually be part of a full trail starting from Beady Eyes. It is a really spectacular ride with the advantage of car access at the top so riders can get dropped off.

Ricochet is in terrible condition and in desperate need of work. The berms are washed out and the rocks are growing larger every time I visit....
