Maybe not the "World's Greatest", but damn good fun!

Overview

Closed Dec 15-Apr 15 every year.

Description

After some fast, flat initial riding, the first downhill section is quite steep with lots of loose rocks. It's short and definitely the hardest part of this trail, so if you don't like it, don't despair. After that, the trail is firm dirt all the way.

You'll drop down very steep, but very tacky dirt, only to ascend the same (though generally shorter) hill on the other side of ravines and ridges several times. Super fun to build a ton of speed when you have a clear view of the runout and launch up the hills after screaming down one. Don't panic and don't lock the brakes!

Near the end, you'll pass Elmer's on the way to Pole Road. This last stretch through valley bottoms is fast and full of whoop-di-doos that will put a smile on your face.
