Upper Hooligan will start as a fun "enduro" style DH trail with berms, rocks and jumps with similar features found throughout the entire length of trail. Use Upper Hooligan to connect to Lower Hooligan for 5 miles of exceptional downhill riding engineered by Dirt Mechanics out of Bend, OR

Access Info

Ride up on Spence Mountain South Ridge and stay right appx. 5 miles where the trail splits. Upper Hooligan starts with short, quick climbs thru some rocks and leads into jumps, berms and rock features. After several switchbacks you will be spit out onto the fire road and look for the trail to continue on the right. After another section of great downhill you will naturally be sent left on another fire road. Stay on the road until you see an obvious trail on the right. Continue on this until a third fire road where Lower Hooligan starts.

      Pretty significant snow on most of the trail as it wraps around the summit. Rocks are definitely a bit slick.

      Great trail! But the signage on the ground indicates that it does not start this high.

      Great trail with the right amount of tech and flow. Ride up the South Ridge Trail to the junction and ignore/don't let yourself be tempted by all the meaty features on South Ridge on the way up. Hooligan is worth it. Do Upper and Lower for the full ripper. Soft, red volcanic loam surface with nicely built berms and a few excellent doubles. The upper has the tech and the lower is dominated by flow. Bring your Enduro whip or do like my kid and bring out that Park or DH rig if you don't mind the climb on it. Super fun trail.

      Do it, it's fun! Fast and flowy with some double'able rollers, some little tech sections, but mostly just a blast to ride down.
