Starting from Becks Rd, head down Mission Creek Pkwy (gravel road/doubletrack) crossing the railroad and the paved Minger trail on bridges. Immediately after crossing the Munger trail look for the singletrack on your left.

Drop in and hold on! This is one of the most fun trails in town. 180 degree berms, rollers and a smooth surface will have you whooping and hipping all the way down. There are no dedicated tabletops or doubles on this trail just small rollers and grade reversals, making it ideal for a variety of skill levels: Beginners can roll everything, intermediates can work on their jump skills and advanced riders can see what they can hip and double up.

If you are looking to head east on Name TBD Trail , slow down after the first set of switchbacks and look carefully for the split left, it's easy to get caught up in the fun and miss the turn-off.

At the bottom this trail rejoins the doubletrack Mission Creek Pkwy to connect to Valley West or Porcupine Passage
