  • Global Ranking

This is a high speed descent down a loose and steep jeep trail. Bring your DH or Enduro bike as there are plenty of natural hips and berms to boost off of. This trail isn't very challenging going slow, but it's easy to get up to 30 or even 40mph in a hurry, and you may easily find yourself in over your head. Best conditions are right after a light rain. This trail is popular on the weekend during non-winter months with off road enthusiasts, so beware of uphill traffic. Best to hit early sprint or the later fall months-- when it's not deathly hot.
