Trail Description
About this trail
This is legit downhill/freeride terrain. The trail plummets at extreme grades with big drops in sketchy tight woods, and major gap jumps, one measuring a full 30 feet. The big gaps have ride arounds, but this is still tough terrain given the extreme grade and loose gravelly surface. Definitely not for the faint of heart, even with the ride arounds.

About a third of the way down, the trail crosses Gold Camp Road--simply merge downhill onto the road and look for the next singletrack on the right to rejoin I-35.

There are a couple forks with parallel trails. All are pretty much equally sketchy.

The climb back up to the car on Old Stage Road is washboardy and often steep. Not a lot of fun if you're on a serious DH bike. Many will shuttle this one.

Review: A really good trail for super expert riders. You will need a dedicated downhill bike. There is some rocky bits that aren't possible to get down on anything other than a full suspension un-compromised downhill bike. The trail features large jumps many of which are gaps. There are ride arounds for these features but it is also important to bear in mind that there are super steep rocky drop offs which you cannot bike around. Again, get a downhill bike. Currently the trail is a bit rutted out due to rain. I think a couple people with shovels could quickly fix the trail and have it in good condition.

Review: Excellent super-expert trail, occasionally fun for the mere mortal. If you're not comfortable with extreme steeps in narrow trees on loose, sketchy surface, stay away. If you do come here, be prepared to swallow your pride and walk a few features. Whoever laid this one out truly had the top 0.1% in mind. But most of it can be fun for more like the top 10% if you're not too ate up about hitting everything clean. There are some very nicely bermed turns along the way. At one point, the trail drops a full 1,000 vertical feet in just a mile, often on very loose tread.
