Flowy, downhill singletrack that starts at the bottom of School of Rock and/or Pineapple Express. Features include a wooden step up, some beautiful berms, and rock features.

Singletrack through open forest and across a grassy coal tailings slope. After the open grassy slope it passes an abandoned brick building known as the Kenworth Shop. Below the building watch for three technical drops on the right, or take the new rollable jumps on the left. Keep the wheels on the ground if it is windy.

Warning: there is a kicker jump as the trail leaves the forest and enters the grassy slope. Bypass it unless you are experienced with this type of jump.

Access Info

When accessed by riding down School of Rock, cross the pipeline, turn right (east) along the fence and cross the fence at a gate and sign indicating private property (bicycles allowed). A steel post here whistles in the wind, giving the trail its name.

This trail is unsanctioned.
