Update

Short, relentless technical climb followed by a thrilling downhill ride recommended for any DHer

Tim Condit

Overview

Arguably the best DH ride in the area with so many technical variations, you'll need to have an arsenal of skills as you'll be challenged.

Description

For this ride you have 2 options. a) If you are a Baller, or don't have a DH bike, you can ride your All Mountain Bike and may only have to take the ride around for a few sections that are better suited for a DH bike; or b) you can bring the DH bike. Hike Dead Cow and DH Suicide. The ride is hella fun either way.

This ride is simply amazing. If you choose to ride Dead Cow be prepared for a short relentless steep technical leg burning climb. But, it is worth the pain as Suicide will delight with jumps (single and double), berms, drops, loose rocks, boulders, steeps, fast flowy sections, and switchbacks... its got a little bit of everything. This ride will, without a doubt, challenge you.

Be sure you have a bell on and look out for the occasional hiker that's sure to be in the middle of the trail on a blind corner.
