“The gnarliest descent on the system, toes the line between downhill and all mountain ride.”
Matt Baatz on Dec 5, 2013
Getting There     GPX File     Print
5.4 Miles 95% Singletrack 436’ Ascent -1,082’ Descent 804’ Low 1,804’ High
Overview
Follows the craggy contours of the mountain top on “just barely” track. Corkscrew through veritable elevator chutes. Continue with a natural roller coaster ride down the undulations in the terrain. Concludes with an incredibly fun berm run down to Tweed River via The Stairs. “All mountain” riders will be content.
Need To Know
Park a shuttle vehicle at Amee Farm Trailhead and at Tweed Cabin Trailhead. The way is not all downhill, but this will take a significant chunk out of the climb.
Description
From the Tweed Cabin Trailhead ascend the last few hundred feet towards the summit on Green Trail. Proceed straight onto Zebedee for an ecstatic ride that will only nudge you slightly towards your destination. Bear left on Summit Loop and utilize the sublime stopover at the top to regroup, adjust seat height and shock travel, and gather courage if necessary. Follow Devil's Throat to the right of the stone cabin. After a sequence of somewhat steep rollable ledge, look for Upper Bubba straight ahead. Two rock chutes of even greater challenge connect you to the top of Fuster's Trail.

Cross several small ravines then look for the turnoff to Bubba Trail. The first half of the trail is rolling, tight and very technical whereas the second half speeds up quite a bit, remaining narrow but much faster flowing. Continue onto the lower leg of Fuster’s Trail, crossing a waterfall, then making a right onto the berm intensive Stairs/ Escalator.

Cross Tweed River and Fuster’s Field and make a brief ascent to Amee Farm Trailhead via Barn Dance.
