The world famous Captain Jack's downhill.

The Kraken

Overview

Dogs: Leashed

Description

This is a true multi-use trail (hiking, mtb, horses, and moto's). Moto's have recently been let back on this classic trail so be on the lookout and keep your ears open for them.

The trail is wide singletrack, very fast, with just a few short uphill sections. There aren't any intersections to worry about.

Start at the top of High Drive heading North from the parking area. Roll it as fast as you like until you finally come out on Gold Camp Road by Tunnel #1.

Beware the gravel! When it's dry, the gravel can be quite deep and sandy. When it's moist and tacky, though, it's a hoot.

Pros: Lots of fast drifty riding. Cons: The lack of dirt, surprisingly pedals, and too short.
