About this trail
Ripfest singletrack. Very fast, very fun. Can be ridden either direction, however, you will have to ride Tom Blake Trail, Stark's Trail, Cross Mtn. Trail or Government Trail to access Powerline.

Review: Buy a lift pass and you can go up and down on this trail all day/week. Several local shops rent all mtn bikes for a reasonable rate ($40ish/day). This trail is fast, fast, fast and in several spots I pushed the rotors on my brakes to the max trying to slow down on some of the switchbacks after riding downhill at 25mph. My braking fingers were sore the next day!! There is not a lot of technical features, but the speed alone makes it an advance ride when you are haulin'. Some of the tall meadowgrass make the singletrack very narrow in some places, which takes finesse when you are feathering your bike around corners. I miscalculated once, and threw my shoulder out during a FOOSH. Thank God for tall grass landings...you won't be disappointed...this trail is like Disneyworld for novice DH riders.

Review: Just as the name implies. This narrow trail is pure speed depending on which direction you travel. It rips down the mountain with very few turns and allows for some outrageous speed.
