This is a double black diamond downhill trail for full suspension bikes with at least 5 inches of travel. It follows the Willow Creek down from the high country above Bass Lake, California. This is one long adrenalin rush from top to bottom and you dare not take your thoughts off of the trail ahead. I recommend this trail to advanced riders only as it encounters a wide variety of technical spots that will require a high degree of skill.

       I’m pretty sure this map takes you up to McLeod flat into willow creek. Such a great trail. I ride it all the time and it’s my favorite trail (I live only fifteen minutes away from it)
