Built in the 1990's, The Zipper was the most technical trail on the hill. It had rock faces and drops all being ridden on fully rigid bikes. Over the years, the trail has changed a little but the overall theme and character is still reminiscent of the legendary trail it was when first built over 20 years ago. In the spring of 2016, a new entrance was built using a big rock face as an entrance feature re-igniting the popularity and use of the trail.
