A fast, screaming downhill! This trail is used several times per year for downhill races, but is totally rideable on a regular mountain bike. Enjoy this sweet downhill!

    While this trail is designed to be an exciting downhill, there is nothing built into it that would keep you from enjoying it at your pace, provided your bike is equipped with brakes.

    Amazing downhill! Black Diamond.

    There are several jumps (all rollable), some technical gnar, some steeps, a couple of wicked berms, and a small 3-4 foot drop at the bottom.
